The pilot is being produced by FOX International channels and will also star Patrick Fugit and Gabriel Bateman.
Patrick Fugit will play Kyle Barnes, a young man who’s been plagued by possession since he was a child. He sets out to seek answers, only to uncover something that could end all life on Earth as we know it. Philip will play Reverend Anderson, a hard drinking, hard gambling West Virginian evangelical preacher who believes he’s a soldier in God’s holy war against evil. Bateman has been cast as 8-year-old Joshua Austin, a young boy who lives across town who appears to be possessed by a demon and has a mysterious connection to Kyle.
"Despite the success of 'The Walking Dead,' 'Outcast' is only my second foray into the horror genre," Kirkman has said. "I think Kyle Barnes is every bit as compelling as Rick Grimes and demonic possession is way scarier than zombies - so this is going to be fun."
Outcast doesn't have an air date yet, but we’ll keep you updated on this project as it develops.
