Pre-Production Begins on Project Pangea: Dinosaurs Unleashed
It's been almost a year since we first got the early word on Poison Apple Films' Project Pangea: Dinosaurs Unleashed, but we heard from director Phil Nichols today with an update, and things seem to be moving along quite nicely.
From the Press Release:
From the team that brought you Renfield: The Undead and S.I.C.K. Serial Insane Clown Killer comes a sci-fi horror movie with the flavor of the Carnosaur movies, Lake Placid, and Ssssssss. Poison Apple Films presents PROJECT PANGEA: DINOSAURS UNLEASHED!
It was written by Melissa Nichols and will be directed by Phil Nichols, both of whom are also producing along with Bob Willems. Dinosaur and special make-up effects will be handled by Nichols and his Facades FX Make-up Lab. The film's music will be composed by Jeffrey Walton.
"There’s trouble in Paradise…" Paradise, Texas, that is. A small town sheriff and his deputy try to solve an outbreak of missing persons reports while keeping the status quo in their quiet rural community. Their investigation leads them to some strange and bizarre discoveries; among them, a secret lab where a mad professor is cooking up biohazards of Jurassic proportions!
Casting has begun, many of whom are veterans from Renfield: The Undead. You can also expect some industry veterans in cameo roles.
