"Meskada" writer-director Josh Sternfeld just confirmed that actors Nick Stahl and Rachel Nichols would be playing the leads in his rural police drama set to begin filming Monday in Greene and Columbia Counties in New York's Hudson Valley.
He said that the contracts were signed and that the other roles would be filled in quickly as they head into production.
Stahl will be playing Noah Cordin, a small town police detective investigating the homicide of a young child that occurs during a break-in.
Stahl is probably best known from his role as John Connor in “Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines” and from HBO’s series “Carnivale” and the 2001 film “In the Bedroom.”
Nichols will be playing Leslie Spencer, a county Sheriff’s Investigator, also working on the homicide case.
She can currently be seen in “Star Trek” and is also starring in the upcoming film ”GI Joe: The Rise of Cobra” set to be released in August.
“I’m very excited to be working with both actors,” Sternfeld told Look, Read, Listen.
