Michael Imperioli will star in writer-director Richard Ledes’ horror-thriller Foreclosure, set to commence principal photography in New York next week.

Imperioli joins a cast that includes Ledes regulars Wendell Pierce and Bill Raymond, as well as Jeff Burchfield, Meital Dohan, Brandon Gill, Spencer List, Tristan Laurence Perez, William Stone Mahoney and Roger Robinson.

Foreclosure takes place in a neighbourhood block in which nearly every house sits vacant and bank-owned in the wake of the mortgage crisis. Ged Dickersin is producing and Josh Braun of Submarine represents North American rights.

“Michael Imperioli is a great actor with a deep understanding of film-making,” Ledes, whose previous credits include A Hole In One and The Caller, said. “Like a jazz ensemble, I can’t imagine a better artist to join the two cats with whom I’ve had the privilege to work previously and who are back for Foreclosure: Wendell Pierce and Bill Raymond.”

UTA and Tina Thor at TMT Entertainment represent Imperioli.
