Kelsey Grammer has always been vocal about starring in films you wouldn’t expect him to. That’s why he was in The Expendables 3. Now, he’s signed up to star in a 3D monster movie film called Nest and it has powerfully grabbed our attention.
THR reports that he and Kellan Lutz have been cast in “the largest Chinese-Australian co-production to date, follows a group of scientists exploring an ancient labyrinth who must fight off a swarm of deadly, man-eating funnel web spiders if they hope to survive.”
They join the already-cast Li Bingbing, who is best known to Western audiences for her roles in Resident Evil: Retribution and Transformers: Age Of Extinction.
Nest is being directed by Kimble Rendall, who is responsible for the actually-really-entertaining shark-in-a-supermarket movie Bait. Will Nest be a similar blend of schlocky silliness and genuine thrills? Only time will tell. But we’re definitely looking forward to it.
