Lost star for Irish horror

RTÉ reports that Dominic Monaghan, star of hit TV series Lost, will play an 18th-century gravedigger and corpse trader in a film from Irish writer-director Glenn McQuaid.

The indie horror film, called I Sell the Dead, will be McQuaid's feature-length directorial debut.

In 2005 he helmed a 12-minute short called The Resurrection Apprentice about a young boy entering the world of grave robbers.

Also slated to appear in the film is Hellboy's Ron Perlman as a mysterious priest, Larry Fessenden (Broken Flowers) as a fellow gravedigger and Angus Scrimm (Phantasm) as an aristocratic doctor.
Best of luck to Glenn, who begins shooting his original script this May in New York.
