More Cast Members Enter The Mist

With filming already underway on his adaptation of Stephen King’s cracking chiller, The Mist, Frank Darabont has further fleshed out his cast.

Marcia Gay Harden, who won an Oscar for Ed Harris’ Pollock, and British actor Toby Jones – last seen as Truman Capote in Infamous – have joined the likes of Thomas Jane, Andre Braugher and Darabont regulars Jeffrey DeMunn, William Sadler and Laurie Holden.

No word yet on which parts Harden and Jones will play in the horror flick, which follows a group of disparate people trapped in a local supermarket, after an otherworldly mist, containing untold legions of lethal H.P. Lovecraft-style creatures, consumes their town.

But if Empire were a betting website, we’d wager that Harden will play Mrs. Carmody, a religious nutjob who perhaps poses a greater threat to the assembled survivors than the nasty beasties outside. No idea about Jones, though. But we do know that we’re very, very excited at the prospect of Shawshank Redemption helmer Darabont returning to the big screen and having his first directorial crack at horror, and so should you be.

The Mist has just started lensing in Lousiana, and will be released around October, all being well. As ever, you'll hear more when we hear more.
