Four more cast members signed...
Coming Soon reports that both David Cronenberg and Jeff Fahey will guest star in the ninety-minute pilot for Rewind from BermanBraun and Universal Cable Productions.
Four actors have been signed to join Shane McRae, including Keisha Castle-Hughes, Jennifer Ferrin, Robbie Jones and Keon Mohajeri. Jack Bender (Lost) will direct from a screenplay by Justin Marks. Marks will also executive produce with Tom Spezialy, Gail Berman, Lloyd Braun and Gene Stein. The show has already begun production in Toronto.
Here's a synopsis: "Rewind" revolves around a team of military field operatives and civilian scientists who must use untested technology to travel back in time to alter past events in order to change the future and avoid a devastating terrorist attack.
Castle-Hughes will portray Priya, the team's historian and behavioral anthropologist. Her knowledge of history goes "beyond the boundaries of facts". Jennifer Ferren will play a scientist named Bryce who is incredibly intelligent and "doesn't care what people think of her". Jones will play Danny, Knox's (Shane McRae) friend. Mohajeri plays Charlie, a mathematician who created the technology that can "reduce history to mathematics, in order to measure the team's action in the past."
Cronenberg will play a Nobel Prize winner who is "unhinged" after the death of his wife, and puts in motion a plan to "alter the course of history.". Fahey plays Ellis, a former NASA aerospace engineer and part of the team. He is described as "intensely loyal" to Bryce.
McRae stars as Sean Knox, "ex-Special Forces who ranks as a field operative in a special division of the Department of Homeland Security. A self-aware, wry, clever and razor-sharp strategic mind, Knox likes to be underestimated. Now, Knox has been recruited for a nearly impossible top-secret mission: to travel back in time to prevent a devastating terrorist attack."
