Also joining the cast will be MMA fighter Krxysztof Soszynski who recently worked with Michael Biehn on the MMA film Tapped. Biehn will also star in the film.
“I have never seen such a violent film that didn’t feel gratuitous and exploitive,” commented Biehn. “Patricio Valledares did an incredible job to combat that with his original film and we’re excited to announce that he is on-board to direct the English remake.”
At present, Hidden in the Woods cast includes Biehn, Forsythe and Soszynski as well as Jeannine Kaspar (Iron Man, “House of Lies,” “Nip/Tuck”), Electra Avelan (Grindhouse, Machete Kills) Mark Burnham (Quentin Dupieuxs, Wrong and Wrong Cops), Jennifer Blanc (The Victim, Wrong Cops) and Richard Gunn (“Granite Flats,” “Dark Angel”). ) caitlin Keats(broken.

“We feel this story needs to be told,” commented Jennifer Blanc-Biehn producer of Hidden in the Woods. “It’s based on a true criminal case. Three out of every four women are abused throughout the world so we hope to be able to not only tell a story but also donate some of the proceeds to a few women’s charities to stop the violence.” First look”Poster art teaser by DOG & PONY.
