The Incredible Hulk himself, Lou Ferrigno, is set to play a “murderous, cannibalistic pig farmer” in director Salvatore Sclafani’s upcoming horror film The Hermit, Variety reports.
In The Hermit: “Eric and Lisa, who are both 19, go to a resort, venture off trail, stumble across a farm, go in, see animal heads hanging from the wall.” There, they encounter the titular Hermit (Ferrigno), who is described by the film’s producers as a loner who was isolated by his mother in the forest, leaving him somewhat feral.
“Most people are surprised that I’ve never really entered the horror space before now,” Ferrigno told Variety. “When I was a kid I was fascinated with the monsters of the time like Dracula and Frankenstein. So I am really excited and honored to be working with such a great team on something that will for sure excite fans. The character I am playing is unique and will give an updated twist to those monsters I grew up with.”
