He played mythical punk idol Bucky Haight in HARD CORE LOGO and the inbred mutant Three Fingers in WRONG TURN. On TV he’s appeared as the Hooded Leader in TODD AND THE BOOK OF PURE EVIL and as Death on SUPERNATURAL. You saw him diced into pieces in CUBE, and starring alongside zombies in George A. Romero’s SURVIVAL OF THE DEAD. He’s immediately recognizable in blockbusters such as X-MEN: THE LAST STAND and MAN OF STEEL. Julian Richings is one of Canada’s greatest and most recognizable character actors, and now he stars in the alien invasion-themed EJECTA as extremely reclusive UFO conspiracy theorist William Cassidy. Taken prisoner by a secret government agency investigating the arrival of something otherworldly in the woods, he’s got a decade-long connection to the visitors that one Dr. Tobin (Lisa Houle, of PONTYPOOL fame) is determined to torture out of him. Unfolding in flashbacks is the night the aliens return, via footage shot by filmmaker Joe Sullivan (EXIT HUMANITY’s Adam Seybold), who’s tracked Cassidy down for a documentary and got much more than he bargained for, capturing some truly disturbing images of something in the forest that isn’t human.
Produced by Foresight Features, ANTISOCIAL, THE DROWNSMAN), and co-directed by Chad Archibald (ANTISOCIAL, SEPTIC MAN, THE DROWNSMAN) and Matt Wiele (MONSTER BRAWL, EXIT HUMANITY), EJECTA gives Richings a chance to shine as leading man forced to endure a variety of horrors. Written by acclaimed author/screenwriter Tony Burgess (PONTYPOOL, SEPTIC MAN), this original concept for an alien-themed horror film is half nail-biting found-footage terror and half suspense-laden conspiracy thriller. Sprinkle with action, body horror and creature effects, and you’ve got yourself a fun Canuck horror vehicle that has the guts to put one of our coolest actors in the driver seat for a change. Watch the skies…
