Exclusive Casting Update and Photos from the Set of Joy Ride 3
Having just returned from the currently shooting (and entirely bloody) feature Joy Ride 3 in Winnipeg, Canada, here’s a gallery of exclusive photos from the set as well as a casting update. Read on!
Written and directed by Declan O'Brien, whose previous horror entries include the Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment features Wrong Turn 3, Wrong Turn 4 and Wrong Turn 5 (as well as Syfy's Sharktopus), Joy Ride 3 originated with the 2001 Paul Walker-starring, J.J. Abrams-co-scripted film Joy Ride. Produced by Kim Todd, this installment (which melds the worlds of tuner car racing and road-trip horror) stars Ken Kirzinger (Freddy vs. Jason) as the project's villainous truck-driver 'Rusty Nail,' with actor and stuntman Rick Skene in a supporting role.
Joining the cast are Jesse Hutch (Freddy vs. Jason) as racer ‘Jordan Wells’, Benjamin Hollingsworth (of the television series “Cult”) as mechanic ‘Mickey Cole,’ Gianpaolo Venuta (of the series “Being Human”) as ‘Austin Moore’, Jake Manly (“Hemlock Grove”) as ‘Bobby Crow,’ Kirsten Prout (The Twilight Saga: Eclipse) as ‘tuner-car girl’ ‘Jewel McCaul,’ Leela Savasta (2006’s Black Christmas) as ‘Alisa Rosado,’ Dean Armstrong (Wrong Turn 4: Bloody Beginnings) as ‘Officer Williams,’ Sarah Mitch as ‘Candy,’ and J. Adam Brown as ‘Rob,’ among others.
We’ll be running an exclusive interview with Prout soon as well as extensive behind-the-scenes video and interviews from the set with filmmaker O’Brien and stars Hollingsworth, Kirzinger and others nearer to the film’s release.
We’d like to thank Fox’s Conor Sellers and Trailer Park’s Kara Warner for their assistance.
Rusty Nail is back on the road again looking to punish injustice at every turn — and this time it’s with a group of hothead twenty-somethings on their way to the Road Rally 1000. As they drive through a desolate shortcut on the way to the race, an encounter with Rusty turns sour, and soon he is tracking, teasing, and torturing them until the end of the road.
