Jones, a former contortionist, who is perhaps best known in the UK for his roles in the Hellboy films and Pan’s Labyrinth, will play the part of the ‘monstrously evil’ Sir Daniel Southall.
Also attached to the film, which goes into pre-production shortly is monster effects specialist Neill Gorton ( FROM HELL); Stunt Co-ordinator Andy Bennett (THE WOMAN IN BLACK) and Storyboard artist Ben Oliver (JUDGE DREDD, X-MEN).
Keen to involve the public, We Are Monsters producer, director and co-writer John Shackleton, has turned to crowd-funding platform Kickstarter in what is being dubbed the most ambitious UK Kickstarter film project yet. Their campaign runs until Feb 11th and has already reached 30% of their £100k funding goal.
