Here’s a bit of news that almost managed to slip by us… and would have pissed me off to no end if it had.
The Hollywood Reporter made mention today that Billy Zane, who’s been seen in everything from Dead Calm to Titanic but to most fans will always be the bald-headed Collector from Tales From the Crypt: Demon Knight, has taken the lead in a new zombie film called The Mad. Directed by John Kalangis, The Mad is the story of a doctor and his teenage daughter who are terrorized by flesh-eating ghouls at a truck stop.
The Mad is set to roll cameras this month in Canada and is being produced by Archetype Films, the same house behind the Ron Perlman-starrer 5ive Girls and the Robert Englund-led Heartstopper, among others. We’ll have more for you on The Mad very soon; stay tuned!
