The revived Hammer Films' debut feature Beyond the Rave has gained a director and a full cast, according to ShockTillYouDrop.com. Matthias Hoene, who has helmed music videos for Tom McRae and Fatboy Slim, will take the director's chair for the production. The cast includes Nora-Jane Noone (The Descent), Jamie Dornan (Marie-Antoinette), and Tamer Hassan (Layer Cake). Legendary Hammer actress Ingrid Pitt is expected to make a cameo. No word on whether the previously-reported Rick Warden ("Band of Brothers") is still in as vampire Strigoli.
The script for Beyond the Rave follows a soldier named Ed who, on the eve of being deported to Iraq, sets out with his pal Necro to find his girlfriend. When Ed and Necro finally catch up to her at a rave in the woods, they learn they are in the company of bloodsuckers and that the lead vampire Melech has plans for this party's guests.
