First Look: Christopher Lee & Jeffrey Dean Morgan in The Resident
Now these are some photos you need to check out. The Resident is the first Hammer Film in over 30 years. They're the same production company responsible for a lot of the old classic horror films from the 60s and 70s that starred Christopher Lee. And remarkably enough, Hammer has brought back Sir Lee for this film - you can see him below thanks to ShockTillYouDrop. Speaking of that, CNN published a great retrospective on Christopher Lee for Halloween - read it here. In addition to Lee, The Resident stars Jeffrey Dean Morgan, Hilary Swank, and Lee Pace, and will hit theaters in 2010. I know you're curious, so check these photos out.
The Resident is about a doctor (Swank) who moves into a new tenement in New York City only to be stalked by her landlord (Morgan). Inevitably, his creep factor rises and a game of cat and mouse begins. Christopher Lee plays Morgan's grandfather named August (as seen above). The film is both written and directed by Finish filmmaker Antti Jokinen, who is making his English language feature debut with The Resident. So far so good, I'm getting excited for Hammer Films return, even just from look at these two photos. And in the meantime, I'll probably catch up on some of their old classics with Christopher Lee this Halloween weekend.
