Tobin Bell has filmed his scenes for Matt Eskandari’s The Deep End. He joins Alexandra Park (The Royals) and Nora-Jane Noone (The Descent, Doomsday) in the horror thriller, which begins shooting this week in Los Angeles. Park and Noone play sisters who become trapped under the fiberglass cover of a public swimming pool; a plot simple yet drenched in deliciously claustrophobic potential.
Eskandari is directing the film from a script he co-wrote with Michael Hultquist. Citizen Skull Productions Mark Myers, executive producer of Experimenter and Manson Family Vacation (in which Bell also starred), will oversee the production with executive producers Fernando Szew, Sharon Bordas and Hannah Pillemer.
Best known as the now-iconic villain from the long-running Saw series, Tobin Bell is used to seeing people trapped, though admittedly in less seemingly innocuous surroundings than a public pool. He most recently appeared in “Manson Family Vacation.” His credits date back to 1988’s “Mississippi Burning” and include “Goodfellas,” “In the Line of Fire,” “The Firm,” “The Quick and the Dead” and “Dark House.”
Eskandari’s directing credits include Lionsgate’s “Game of Assassins,” starring Bai Ling, and IFC Midnight’s “Victim.”
