When we posted our schedule for Day 3 of San Diego Comic-Con, one item caught our eye that might, however, have slipped by yours so we thought we’d do a separate story bringing it to your attention: During the Halo-8 panel on that day, the actress playing Cassie Hack in the Hack/Slash illustrated film will be introduced!

Halo-8 to Announce Star of Hack/Slash Illustrated FilmThe actress, who is also appearing at SDCC for a panel promoting another genre series she stars in, will join creator Tim Seeley and director Matt Pizzolo at Halo-8’s panel on Saturday, July 23rd, from 7:00-8:00 pm in Room 9.

The Hack/Slash illustrated film is currently in production. It mixes comic book sequential art with 3D CGI and, in a new twist for Halo-8, rotoscoped animation of live-action performances.

Cassie is a great role, and there are a lot of established actresses who’d love to bring her to life. We feel really blessed by the actress we’ve selected to take on the role–not only is she a fan favorite, but she herself is a fan of Tim, Cassie, and Vlad,” said Pizzolo, who is directing the film and designing its visual style. “With Hack/Slash we’re working more with green screen and roto-style animation so this actress will literally be taking on Cassie’s skin.

In the past actresses including Megan Fox and Kat Dennings have spoken publicly about how they’d love to play Cassie Hack, and a Twitter campaign #AllisonScag4Cassie trended for “Warehouse 13″‘s Allison Scagliotti to win the coveted role.

Be sure to stop by the panel on the 23rd to see who came out on top!

In addition, the six-issue Godkiller: Walk Among Us series will be collected for the first time in a 230-page trade paperback that includes an all-new 15-page epilogue, and the Godkiller spinoff mini-series The Long Knives: Becoming Vultures will also debut at SDCC in the form of a 222-page graphic novel (Book 1 of 2). Lastly, with Godkiller 2: Tomorrow’s Ashes currently in production, new art will be unveiled at Con. (Stop by Booth #M-03 to see it all and meet the Halo-8 crew.)

Simon Pegg and Nick Frost Are Truth Seekers Playing by Slaughterhouse Rulez

Published

on

One of our favorite pairings of stars from the last twenty years is no doubt that of Simon Pegg and Nick Frost. Their chemistry is undeniable, and if you didn’t get enough of it in “Spaced,” Shawn of the Dead, Hot Fuzz, The World’s End, and Paul, you’re about to get a bellyful of it on both big and small screens.

Variety is reporting that Frost and Pegg will be starring in “Truth Seekers,” a half-hour comedy-horror TV show about a three-person paranormal investigation team.

According to the site, each installment of “Truth Seekers” will focus on a paranormal incident, a setup with clear monster-of-the-week potential. “Each episode is going to be an adventure, a potential haunting or something,” Pegg says. “It’ll start as a very parochial idea, a very small business venture for these people, but it will expand as the series goes on to be something far more global. It’s a language everyone understands, the mystery of the unknown. Shaun of the Dead was a very parochial story set in North London, and somehow it managed to get this global reach because everyone understands the language of zombie movies.

That’s not all, though… the pair are also working on the feature film Slaughterhouse Rulez, a horror-comedy now in post-production. Directed by Crispian Mills and set in a well-to-do public school, the movie is “very satirical, very much about the U.K. selling itself off,” Pegg says. “It’s about fracking as well, and that unleashes some awful subterranean demon.

Both of these projects will be released under their Stolen Picture shingle. Stay tuned, kids! More as we get it!

Andrew and Sara are happily married and plan on spending some quality time together, but something sinister has other plans for their evening.
