Drew Barrymore's Animal Gets People

While Drew Barrymore - actor, producer, director - has hardly been ubiquitous on our screens of late, she has been busy behind them, where she's been putting her own projects together. One of those, Animal, has moved a step closer to lift-off. The Hollywood Reporter reveals that an ensemble cast has signed on for the slasher horror.

Joyful Noise's Keke Palmer has scored the headline role as one of a tightly-knit group of friends who are left isolated in alien terrain and terrorised by a maniac as they're picked off one by one. Another remote cabin in a darkened wood; another escalating bodycount. Seriously, how many times do movie characters need to be told? Cabins and woods don't mix.

Joining Palmer in said woods are rapper-stroke-actress Eve, Prison Break's Amaury Nolasco, Friday Night Lights' Jeremy Sumpter, Chasing Amy's Joey Lauren Adams, Parker Young, Elizabeth Gillies, Paul Iacono and Thorsten Kaye.

THR are reporting that Animal is underway in woody Connecticut, with a limited 2014 theatrical release planned.
