Actor Marc Natoli has officially come aboard the cast in Eric Red’s upcoming survival thriller, No Man’s Ridge, which just signaled its casting on Friday hours earlier attaching actor and producer John Fallon. The three are further joined as of Friday by actor Nick Principe, best known for his role in Ravi Dhar’s 2014 actioner, American Muscle.
Red is directing from his own script which centers on five heavily-armed extreme hunters who go into the remote Wyoming wilderness to bag Bigfoot, but instead find themselves out-manned against a relentless killing machine when they trespass on the Sasquatch’s turf. Red, an LA-based novelist, screenwriter and filmmaker with screen credits that include Body Parts, 100 Feet, and Katherine Bigelow’s Near Dark and Blue Steel to name a few, is also producing with Fallon.
Natoli, a 25-year veteran practitioner of a variety of martial arts styles, is a relative newcomer in the field. His entry was granted a warm reception back in October for the premiere of Ben Whimpey’s recent action short, The Proposal, in which Natoli starred and also served as fight choreographer with Fallon penning the script.
The two will also share screen credits on Stu Stanton’s upcoming Paul Allica-led The Siege Of Robin Hood, and in Fallon’s own production, Heretic, early next year.
No Man’s Ridge also marks another reuinion of sorts for Principe whose American Muscle was also penned by Fallon. Principe, repped by Beast Within Productions, will play the central creature in the upcoming film and, among other future releases, is also set to reprise his role in Jason Trost’s FP 2: Beats Of Rage.
