Cary Elwes, Jason Momoa join “Sugar Mountain” dark comedy/thriller

PanARMENIAN.Net - Dark comedy/thriller Sugar Mountain has locked in its cast, featuring Cary Elwes, Jason Momoa, Drew Roy, Haley Webb and Shane Coffey, The Hollywood Reporter said.

The film, which will be directed by Richard Gray (Lookalike), will begin shooting soon in Alaska.

The Yellow Brick Films project is described as a dark comedy/thriller about "love, greed, family and a hoax that goes terribly wrong."

"We're so excited to have such a tremendous cast onboard," said Gray. "Sugar Mountain is a compelling screenplay, which was originally set in Australia, but we found the perfect location in Alaska and writer Abe Pogos did a brilliant job in adapting. I don't think I've been to a more stunning and brutal place, which is perfect for this story. I adore these actors and can't wait to start shooting."

Elwes' previous films include The Princess Bride, Robin Hood: Men in Tights and Quest for Camelot.

Momoa, who appeared on Game of Thrones, currently stars on TV's The Red Road. His past film projects include Conan the Barbarian and Bullet to the Head.

Roy has starred on TV's Hannah Montana and Falling Skies.

Webb's previous work includes The Final Destination and MTV's Teen Wolf.

Coffey appeared on The CW's The Originals and ABC Family's Pretty Little Liars.
