Andre Braugher and Laurie Holden will join Thomas Jane in Dimension Films' adaptation of the Stephen King novella "The Mist".
The script, written by Darabont, is set after a strange storm blows through a Maine town and its citizens are attacked by deadly creatures. A group of townfolks barricade themselves in a supermarket and struggle for survival.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, Holden will play the female lead and Braugher a high-powered attorney who is a neighbour of Thomas Jane's leading character. Shooting is slated to begin in mid-to-late February in Shreveport, Louisiana.
