Sounds to me like actor Nick Principe is trying to make himself a career of being a slasher. Not a bad gig if you can get it! Principe will be seen in Rob Hall’s “>Laid to Rest first, but during a chat with Fangoria he revealed another killer whose boots he hopes to fill soon: the main big bad in Todd Lincoln’s “>Hack/Slash.
“As of right now, I’m playing the lead slasher out of four or five, with the possibility of playing another,” he explained. “I can’t tell you his name or stats just yet, but he will be his own character, not based on anyone from the comic. He was completely developed by me and Todd Lincoln, including one of the craziest backstories ever for a killer. It’s the biggest-budget slasher flick I’ve ever heard of, so a lot of the details as far as who will play Cassie Hack and Vlad are super-hush-hush, but it’s between three very high-profile actors.”
Hack/Slash, based on the Devil’s Due comic of the same name, has been in the works for years, but only recently has it seemed like it would finally be coming to fruition; this is a damn good sign, of course!
We’ll keep our ear to the ground (don’t worry, it’s removable) and bring you more updates on Hack/Slash’s progress! Hit the link below to pre-order Laid to Rest through Evilshop for a look at what kind of killer Principe can play!
