Stephen Rea (V For Vendetta) and Ron Perlman (Hellboy) have joined Thomas Jane and John Malkovich in The Mutant Chronicles, a sci-fi action thriller based on the popular role-playing game, says The Hollywood Reporter. German actor Benno Furmann (Joyeux Noel) also has joined the cast of the indie production, set to begin shooting in the summer with director Simon Hunter. Rea plays the former commander of Lieutenant Mitch Hunter (Jane), a 23rd century Marine who tries to save Earth by leading a band of soldiers against evil NecroMutants. Perlman portrays the leader of a religious sect who thinks he can destroy the mutants and save the planet, recruiting Hunter to join him. Furmann portrays Hunter's former nemesis who joins him to fight for the greater good, and Malkovich appears as the head of a council of corporations that rule the Earth.
