New York, NY (PRWEB) June 17, 2006
Georgina Cates, Frances Sternhagen, and Randall Duk Kim have been cast in lead roles for the upcoming suspense/thriller, “Among the Shadows”, a film by Kevin Hicks. Principle photography is expected to begin this fall in the Ithaca area of upstate New York. Georgina Cates will play the lead role of Sylvia Parkes, a renowned artist on the verge of a nervous breakdown who retreats to a remote country home only to find herself haunted by a mysterious housekeeper, flashes of a ghost, and her own fleeting sanity. Frances Sternhagen will play June, the mysterious housekeeper and Randall Duk Kim will play Joe, the house’s groundskeeper. “Every role in this film is integral to the plot of the story. Each one presents unique challenges to the actors,” said director, Kevin Hicks. “We’re lucky to have such talented people on board.”
Georgina Cates returns to feature films after a five-year hiatus to raise her twin boy and girl. She is most known for her memorable role as Amanda in the 1998 David Dobkin film “Clay Pigeons”, starring opposite Joaquin Phoenix and Vince Vaughn.
Frances Sternhagen is an acclaimed, two-time Tony Award winner who most recently played Clairee in the Broadway production of “Steel Magnolias.” Her stage credits include “The Good Doctor,” “Equus,” “On Golden Pond,” “Driving Miss Daisy” and “You Can't Take it With You.” Her film credits have included “Outland,” “Communion,” “Misery” and “Doc Hollywood.”
30-year stage and screen veteran Randall Duk Kim recently had a resurgence of popularity playing roles in such high-profile Hollywood films as Rob Marshall’s “Memoirs of a Geisha” (Dr. Crab), Antoine Fuqua’s “The Replacement Killers” (Alan Chan) and The Wachowski Brothers’ “The Matrix Reloaded” (The Keymaker). “The caliber of talent in Georgina, Frances, and Randall will add a layer and depth to the film that will draw the audience tighter into its twists,” said producer Juan Reinoso.
