Dylan McDermott To Be A Part Of Action-Thriller ‘Freezer’

Dylan McDermott FreezerDylan McDermott who is presently known mostly for starring in the TV series American Horror Story: Asylum; shall now be seen in an action film called Freezer. In the film he shall be essaying the role of a regular Joe who is locked inside an industrial-sized freezer by a bunch of Russian goons. It sounds as if the whole film will play out mostly in the freezer, which would be quite something, as it would mean Dylan being all by himself in front of camera for most part of the film. It would really require for Dylan to exercise his histrionic skills to the fullest and the whole thing might make for quite an interesting ride.

n fact, it might remind many of the film Buried, in which Ryan Reynolds was trapped in a coffin for most part of the film, and therefore the focus was completely on him and how he copes with the situation. His role in Freezer might as matter of fact, be one of the most challenging roles of Dylan’s career. Mikael Salomon has been roped in to direct the film and the movie shall be based on a screenplay written by Tom Doganoglu. For those unaware, Mikael Salomon has directed a number of TV movies and TV shows, and has been a cinematographer for a number of films like The Abyss and Always. He in the past has also directed the Morgan Freeman starrer Hard Rain (1998). It would be interesting to see how Salomon shapes the film given his immense experience and how riveting a performance he gets out of McDermott.

On the issue of Dylan being chosen to star in the film, one of the producers of the film Lee Nelson was quoted as saying “We are excited that Dylan McDermott star FreezerDylan McDermott and Mikael Salomon have come together on this project. Their collaboration will combine Dylan’s intensity as an actor with Salomon’s powerful direction to capture an edge of your seat fight for life”. It sure seems like the combination might hit the spot, and it’s a fresh combination and therefore isn’t predictable.

Also, in Freezer Dylan McDermott will be seen in a role similar to none he has ever essayed in the past, only time will tell if that is a good thing. Just last month McDermott was confirmed as being a part of the film Mercy, which is a horror film based on the Stephen King short story ‘Gramma’. Now horror is a genre that McDermott is really familiar with, so unlike Freezer we know what to expect from him when it comes to Mercy.
