Last week we gave you a few first looks at the production diary for the Thomas Jane directed 3D thriller The Dark Country. The film follows a couple (Jane and Hostel II hottie Lauren German) who are driving across the desert until they come across a badly wounded stranger (Chris Browning, 3:10 to Yuma). From there, things sort of go downhill.

Today, Variety is telling us something that we already knew, but that you may not. They are reporting that Hellboy star Ron Perlman will also star alongside Jane, German and Browning in Jane’s major directorial debut. Perlman will play the sheriff in the story, and for now that’s all we know. Perlman is joining the production directly after wrapping on Guillermo Del Toro’s Hellboy II: The Golden Army, which wraps in the next few days. Perlman recently starred with Tom Jane in The Mutant Chronicles, a fantasy adventure that is set for release sometime in 2008.

The Dark Country was penned by Tab Murphy (Tarzan) and is being produced by Sony Pictures’ new Stage 6 Films in conjunction with Raw Entertainment, which is owned by Jane, artist Tim Bradstreet and 30 Days of Night author Steve Niles. The film will be released in 3D High Definition as well as 2D High Definition. Production is currently underway in New Mexico.
