Joston Theney dropped us a line with the official word that he’s making a sequel to his flick Axeman, which hit DVD a few weeks back. Read on for the first news and details regarding Axeman 2: Overkill.
From the Press Release
On the heels of successful early results from the May 5th release of Axeman, filmmaker Joston â€œEl Reyâ€ Theney and co-writer/executive producer Dr. Christopher Otiko of Blood Red Films announce plans for the sequel, Axeman 2: Overkill.
Officially in pre-production as of Thursday, July 2nd, cameras roll in early October on location in Frazier Park, CA. The upcoming sequel stars former 3-time World Champion (WWE â€œAdam Bomb / WCW â€œWrathâ€) Bryan Clark as the titular character, former â€œBaywatchâ€ and â€œBold and the Beautifulâ€ star Angelica Bridges, recent â€œBig Brotherâ€ reality contest winner Rachel Reilly, and Farrah Abraham in her feature film debut.
Axeman alum Arielle Brachfeld returns to the retro 80s-inspired slasher as plucky, reluctant hero Deputy Darlene Whitfield, as does Theney, who reprises his role as the affable, death-defying Darren Cole. Newcomers to the slasher series are Jacqui Holland (My Best Friendâ€™s Girl), Alisha Seaton (The Fourth Kind), Maria Olsen (Paranormal Activity 3), Monique Parent (Profane Exhibit), and Hannah Landberg (Rabid Love).
When asked for details on the sequel, writer/director Joston Theney replied, â€œWell, itâ€™s certainly a darker, grittier film than the first. We learned a lot from our first go â€˜round. Thereâ€™s no CGI blood splatters. No short cuts in SFX. No deeply, intertwined love trysts. This is a bloodletting! This film WILL live up to itâ€™s name â€“ Overkill. Guaranteed.â€
The sequel will see an initial theatrical release in early 2015.
Get ready for another vacation to dismember with Axeman 2: Overkill.
