Horror Legends Line Up to Get Smothered by John Schneider
Another movie that sounds a bit like a "horror Expendables" type project is gearing up for a quick turnaround, and along with a roster that includes some of the genre's biggest bads, it's heading our way from a very surprising source.
Former "Dukes of Hazzard" star John Schneider (pictured) is teaming up with the actors behind horror's creepiest characters to make a movie under his new film company banner, Fairlight Films, in Baton Rouge, Louisiana. He's ready to roll out the venture's first project, horror comedy Smothered.
Schneider told BlogTalkRadio.com (via MSN), "It stars Kane Hodder, who was Jason Voorhees [in several Friday the 13th movies]; Don Shanks, who was Michael Myers [in Halloween 5]; R.A. Mihailoff, who was Leatherface [in Leatherface: Texas Chainsaw Massacre III]; William Moseley, who was Otis from House of 1000 Corpses and The Devil's Rejects; and Brea Grant, who is from Rob Zombie's Halloween and 'Dexter'."
"It's [about] a group of college students, and invariably one is the large-breasted blonde. [In my film] all the guys in the mask have a bad trade show and take an offer to go haunt an R.V. park for $1,000 each for the weekend... they wind up getting systematically killed off by the large-breasted blonde. It's revenge for blondes everywhere!"
"I kind of feel like the champion of the disenfranchised because these are all the guys in the mask... None of these guys have ever starred in a movie without a mask or some weird disguise, so this is all those serial killers unveiled in this movie. I have a cameo. We're hoping for a release date of December 13, 2014, which happens to be a Friday."
Schneider admits his dream of running a movie production company has been a long time coming, adding, "I decided to start a film company when I was eight; it's just taken me this long to get it going! I was one of those kids who sat in my living room and cut together Super 8 films... that I'd shot with my friends. This has been my goal forever, and once all my kids got out and to college I told [my wife] Elly [Castle], 'Tax breaks are great in Louisiana, and it's possible to make a film here'. So I moved here a year ago, and I've been here ever since."
We'll be keeping any eye on this one so look for more soon.
