Based on the popular RPG game — and now packing a few new cast members. "The Mutant Chronicles" has added Stephen Rea, Ron Perlman, and Benno Furmann to its ranks; the actors join the already-aboard Thomas Jane and John Malkovich.

Says The Hollywood Reporter: "Stephen Rea and Ron Perlman have joined Thomas Jane and John Malkovich in the sci-fi action thriller "The Mutant Chronicles." German actor Benno Furmann ("Joyeux Noel") also has joined the cast of the Edward R. Pressman production, set to begin shooting in the summer with director Simon Hunter. Rea plays the former commander of Lieutenant Mitch Hunter (Jane), a 23rd century Marine who tries to save Earth by leading a band of soldiers against evil NecroMutants. Perlman portrays the leader of a religious sect who thinks he can destroy the mutants and save the planet, recruiting Hunter to join him."

Simon Hunter’s only previous film was a low-budget horror flick called "Lighthouse."

"The Martian Chronicles" is being written by Philip ("Event Horizon") Eisner.
