No, we haven't gone and left a letter out of the headline – Frank Grillo will indeed be battling a Dagon (well, more than one) in The Machinist director Brad Anderson's new creature feature.

Peter Mattei wrote the script for the new film, which focuses on Jack (Grillo), a father looking to control his family’s isolated rural life. When his eldest daughter comes of age, the family must confront the Dagon — the terrifying, deadly creatures that surround them every night.

"Frank Grillo is one of the most compelling and dynamic actors out there and I have been wanting to work with him for ages. The Dagon is tailor made for his huge talents and I couldn’t be happier to have him on board,” says Anderson. "These days especially I think we need more movies like The Dagon – elevated dark stories that can transport you, horrify you, move you and, like all great fairy tales, work as both cautionary tales and beacons of hope."

Anderson should have the cameras rolling this autumn.
