Producer Jonathan Sothcott dropped us a line today to let us know that the search is over for a director and leading lady for his next upcoming feature, Strippers vs. Werewolves.
“Over the last 6 months we’ve been slightly out of the horror game – apart from steering the UK releases of Dead Cert and Devil’s Playground – as Billy Murray and I have been working on a romcom with Richard E Grant called How to Stop Being a Loser and a quirky Danny Dyer thriller called 7Lives, but we are very much back in our favourite genre in 2011!”
“We’ve been busy readying our kick-ass style comedy horror Strippers vsx Werewolves at Black and Blue Towers over Christmas,” says Sothcott. “One of the key steps forward was securing the right director, someone film literate enough to make the material work yet with a pedigree that distributors bought into. Step forward Jonathan Glendening, who directed last year’s uber-slick straight werewolf film 13 Hours. I saw that film at Frightfest because Gemma Atkinson, one of the stars, is a pal, and I was really impressed – it was a truly excellent example of low budget filmmaking, so I immediately set about meeting the director and DOP. Thankfully Jonathan liked us and what we’ve been up to, and he’s now on board, which I’m really excited about – he’s a real talent.”
Sothcott continues, “I’m also really excited that the very talented and utterly stunning Barbara Nedeljakova has joined the project. Horror fans around the world will know Barbara from the Hostel series, and she’s just starred in a new Children of the Corn movie so we are thrilled to have one of the world’s top scream queens on board. She is also a very credible indie actress, too, and I thought she was terrific in Pimp. Hopefully it will be the first of many with her as well as Jonathan.”
Look for more soon!
