In addition to the truckload of cash he’s probably scoring on his Mac ads, Justin Long (known to some of you as the ex-Mr. Drew Barrymore) has secured another payday for himself this morning, as The Hollywood Reporter is reporting Long will be joining the cast of Agnieska Wojtowicz-Vosloo’s psychological thriller (you think the trades will ever use the words “horror movie?”) After Life.
Long joins a cast already including Josh Charles, Christina Ricci, and Liam Neeson.
After Life apparently revolves around a young woman (Ricci) caught between life and death, and a supposedly sympathetic funeral director (Neeson) who may be intent on burying her six-feet under while she’s still alive. For what purposes, we’ll just have to see the movie to find out, I guess.
Long will play Ricci’s boyfriend, Paul, who becomes increasingly aware that not all is right in the state of Denmark. Josh Charles will play the role of Paul’s friend.
Shooting gets underway next Tuesday in New York, so, hopefully, if all goes well we’ll be seeing this next year around the same time.
