"True Blood" star Sam Trammell to topline "The Aftermath" indie

PanARMENIAN.Net - Sam Trammell, who plays bar owner Sam Merlotte on HBO's "True Blood," has booked the lead role as a junkie in the gritty indie movie "The Aftermath", TheWrap said.

An individual familiar with the project tells TheWrap the film's tone is a cross between "Winter's Bone" and "Trainspotting."

Trammell plays a struggling addict who becomes obsessed with a pendant that he believes will save his marriage. When the pendant is stolen, he plunges into the seedy underworld of his small town in search of it.

Tim McCann is directing from a script he co-wrote with Shaun Sanghani, who is also producing. In addition to starring, Trammell will also serve as an executive producer. A July 29 start is scheduled in Alexandria, Louisiana.

"The Aftermath" reunites Trammell with director McCann and producer Sanghani, who recently collaborated on the indie drama "White Rabbit," which also stars Nick Krause and Britt Robertson.

Trammell, who plays bar owner Sam Merlotte on HBO's "True Blood," will soon be seen opposite Virginia Madsen in the indie "Crazy Kind of Love." He has also wrapped "Things People Do" with Wes Bentley and Jason Isaacs, and the comedy "Me" with Jennifer Jason Leigh and Gina Gershon.
