Wes Craven casts Dennis Hopper's son

Aiming to prove he’s a chip off the old block when it comes to the thesping, Henry Lee Hopper (spawn of Dennis) is making his acting debut in Wes Craven’s latest, 25/8.

Along with Denzel Whitaker, Shareeka Epps and Emily Meade, he’ll be part of a group of teens hunted by a serial killer everyone thought had died the day they were born. Taking place during one day, they’ll be tracked down and slaughtered – though Craven is loading the movie with newcomers so no one knows who dies first…
