GHOSTS OF WAR (2018): Theo Rossi Signs On To War Thriller

Theo Rossi

Theo Rossi Set To Co-Star In Ghosts Of War

Sons of Anarchy veteran Theo Rossi is slated to play a leading role in director Eric Bress’s supernatural war film Ghosts of War.

Of course, Rossi is no stranger to genre film and television. Aside from playing ex-Son of Anarchy Juice Ortiz on the aforementioned FX series, Rossi is also known for appearing as Hernan “Shades” Alvarez in Netflix‘s original TV adaptation of Marvel‘s Luke Cage comics. It’s not quite horror, but it’s out there enough for Rossi to have some experience playing characters who inhabit a heightened reality.

So far, the only other actors announced for the project so far are Brenton Thwaites and Skylar Astin. Thwaites previously appeared in Maleficent and The Giver, while Astin had roles in Wreck-It Ralph and the Pitch Perfect series.

Deadline, the source of this story, provides the following synopsis of the movie’s plot as well as information about the financing behind it:

The pic revolves around five battle-hardened American soldiers assigned to hold a French chateau near the end of World War II. Formerly occupied by the Nazi high command, this respite quickly descends into madness when they encounter a supernatural enemy far more terrifying than anything seen on the battlefield. Rossi will play Kirk, a God-fearing solider who has no problem killing Nazis but faces inexplicable paranormal events that make him tweaked and unhinged.

Miscellaneous is financing the project, while Adrian Jayasinha is exec producing. Highland Film Group is handling international sales.

An aspiring writer, longtime film junkie, and former UCLARadio.com disc jockey (where I graduated with a BA in Political Science), I've made the jump from penning book reviews and current events editorials for HonorSociety.org to writing movie and TV news and reviews.

When I'm not working towards my certificate in Radio and Television/Video Production at Fullerton College, I enjoy reading (horror, science fiction, and historical/political nonfiction are particular favorites), participating in my school's TV and theatre clubs, attending movie screenings, plays, concerts, and other events, and trying to come up with pithy things to say on social media. Believe it or not, there are occasions where I find time to write for my own leisure.
