Stephen Moyer to Star in New Movie Called “The Barrens”

Based on the Jersey Devil:

Stephen Moyer as Bill Compton on HBO's True BloodTrue Blood star, Stephen Moyer (Bill Compton), is sticking to his guns in his latest movie, The Barrens. The horror genre seems to sit well on his shoulders, after all. While he will not be playing a vampire in this flick, there will be a strange creature, commonly known as the Jersey Devil, that he will be up against.

The Jersey Devil is said to be a winged beast that is an amalgamation of several other animals. It is that steeped in Jersey tradition that an NHL team is named after it, as well as Bruce Springsteen writing a song about it.

The movie is written by Darren Lynn Bousman (of the Saw franchise fame) and is being produced with the assistance of Richard Saperstein and Brian Witten from The Genre Company. Anyone who saw Deborah Ann Woll in Mother’s Day, will be familiar with this crew. John Eckert and Shara Kay will also assist with production.

The movie will start production in Vancouver shortly, so make sure you keep an eye out for it. And, if anyone in the Vancouver area spots Stephen Moyer out and about, make sure you drop in here and let us know!
