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!
The 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.)
