As Spike’s adaptation of Stephen King’s The Mist starts to come together, the film has brought in a whopping eight new additions.

Hot on the news that Alyssa Sutherland had joined the film, the network has announced plenty more new cast members for their ten-part adap of King’s famed novel. The Mist, of course, had previously been turned into a 2007 movie starring the likes of Thomas Jane, Laurie Holden and Marcia Gay Harden.

To give an idea of what to expect from the show, the synopsis reads: The Mist tells the story of a foreboding mist that arrives in one small town ushering a terrifying new reality for its residents, putting their humanity to the test. What will people do to survive when blinded by gear?

Now on to those new cast additions, as the network has revealed the following information:

Gus Birney as “Alex Cunningham,” the teenage daughter of Kevin and Eve Cunningham. She’s always been the ‘good daughter,’ but her over-protective mother helps to kick-start a rebellious streak.

Dan Butler as “Father Romanov,” a priest who is caught in between modernity and tradition, he has lost his faith but clings to the ritual.

Luke Cosgrove as “Jay Heisel,” a popular local football superstar and the son of the town sheriff who finds himself accused of a heinous crime.

Danica Curcic as “Mia Lambert,” a drug-addicted woman on the run and in search of a mysterious stash of money.

Okezie Morro as “Jonah Dixon,” a military man with amnesia. He can’t remember who he is. As the truth about his identity unravels, shocking secrets will be revealed.

Darren Pettie as “Connor Heisel,” the local alpha male, town sheriff and father to local football superstar Jay. He struggles to maintain order in an increasingly chaotic and dangerous situation, finding himself up against many who have it out for his accused son.

Russell Posner as “Adrian Garff,” an insecure young teenager who comes to the defense of his best friend Alex, after she is the victim of a brutal crime. A witness to the crime, he finds himself at the center of a controversy which threatens to rip apart the community.

Isiah Whitlock, Jr. as “Gus Redman,” a local mall manager. When a new society forms from the mist survivors at the mall, Gus will have to decide if he will take the role of leader and exactly how far he will go to keep order.

As ever, expect more on The Mist as it develops.
