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.

I love Christopher Lee! You can see he's getting old.

[Pedant Alert] It's 'Sir Christopher' not 'Sir Lee,' by the way... [Pedant Alert] But yes, I'm looking forward to Hammer getting a new lease of life too!

These photos blow and add nothing to whatever it is that the article is anticipating about the movie. This reads and looks like filler. Weak shit, really.

#4 LOL It's either, actually. There's even a film called Lease of Life, made back in the 1950s. Look it up.

#8 you're not looking close enough. these photos tell you alot. if Morgon is stalking her, that photo shows that he at one point gets very very close to her, while she's sleeping no less! also shows the relationship between Lee and his grandson. also, Lee is sick and dying, look at the medical fluid bags at the side of his bed. also, did anyone else see a flash of a spinal cord when they scrolled down to the second picture? to me, the way that she was laying, I thought the strap of your nightgown was a spine. kinda creepy. nice photos!
