Devon Graye, best known for playing the teenage Dexter on Showtime's Dexter, will star with C.J. Thomason and Wes Chatham in Husk, a horror movie from After Dark Films, according to The Hollywood Reporter. Tammin Sursok (Aquamarine) also stars.

The story sees five friends on a weekend trip who become stranded in isolated farmland when crows attack their SUV. They soon realize that the corn fields are inhabited by reanimated human scarecrows who reproduce by killing and force their undead victims to join their ranks.

Graye plays the brainiac of the group, Thomason is the blue-collar guy, and Chatham is the jock.

Thomason starred in Harper's Island and appeared in What About Brian and Boston Public.

Chatham appeared last season on CBS' The Unit and appeared in the features In the Valley of Elah and W.

Brett Simmons wrote the script and is directing the project, which is based on Simmons' short film that played at Sundance.
