We were one of the first to tell you about the premiere film from Hell Holes creator Kyle Rankin, Infestation (read it here, if ya missed it), and I’m happy to say that it looks like things are moving along nicely for the flick.
The Hollywood Reporter announced today that Christopher Marquette (The Invisible, Freddy Vs. Jason) has signed on to the lead role in the film, playing one of a ragtag group of survivors trying to make their way across a world that’s been invaded by giant insects. So my theory about giant bugs was right! Ha!
Aside from directing the online episodic Hell Holes, Rankin is also remembered as the winner of Season 2 of Project Greenlight, which allowed him to make The Battle of Shaker Heights. Far from that coming of age story, Infestation is described as Shaun of the Dead meets 28 Days Later and judging by the comedic beats he hits in Hell Holes (see it here), I can see him pulling that combo off without a problem.
Production on Infestation begins on May 28th in Bulgaria (where else!?), keep your eyeballs alert for more info soon!
