Put on your cross and have the holy water handy, I don’t want you to get possessed while watching Robert Kirkman’s Outcast trailer. Just a few days we were blessed with the first images of Patrick Fugit, who plays the lead character Kyle Barnes, as well as Philip Glenister who plays Reverend Anderson. You can see those here.
During the much awaited SDCC Outcast panel, the trailer is FINALLY here! Outcast is based on Robert Kirkman’s and Paul Azaceta’s comic of the same name.
Patrick Fugit (Almost Famous, Gone Girl) stars as Barnes, a man searching for answers, and for redemption, who sequesters himself from those he loves for fear of causing greater hurt. Philip Glenister stars as Reverend Anderson, a West Virginia evangelist who believes he is a soldier in God’s holy war against the forces of evil on Earth. An inveterate drinker and gambler, he doesn’t believe God intends people to sweat the small stuff. Gabriel Bateman stars as Joshua Austin, an eight-year-old who lives across town from Kyle. To his family’s dismay, he appears to be in the clutches of demonic possession, but there’s something very different about this possession and its connection to Kyle Barnes.
Robert Kirkman wrote the pilot episode, You’re Next, directed by Adam Wingard.
