Actor Bee Vang, who played Thao alongside Clint Eastwood in 2008’s Gran Torino, has joined the cast of the upcoming horror-comedy Dark Christmas, Deadline reports today.
Vang will star alongside Nicholas Brendon (“Buffy”) and Corey Sevier (Immortals).
“Dark Christmas is a horror-comedy that follows Jack (Vang) and feisty stripper Ava, who are trapped inside a storage facility with a sorceress, a mage knight and a psychopath on Christmas Eve. They must save the world against a mythic demon that has been released from one of the storage units.”
Deadline notes, “Brendon plays Larry, a disgruntled co-worker of the storage facility while Sevier will step into the role of Bathazar, the handsome and powerful partner of the sorceress.”
Daric Loo wrote the script and will also be directing the film.
“I’m excited to be starring in the first Asian American horror comedy feature Dark Christmas and working with rising director Daric Loo,” Vang said in a statement. ”Jack Chang is the first Hmong leading role created in cinematic history, and I look forward to inhabit Jack who treads between horror and comedy.”
