Check Out Tricia Helfer in “First Look” at Shudder’s CREEPSHOW Reboot
Yesterday, we shared the brilliant new poster for Shudder’s Creepshow reboot, illustrated by Michael Broom. Today, we’re getting a “First Look” at Tricia Helfer in an upcoming episode directed by Roxanne Benjamin, courtesy of EW. Have a look-see:
Of the upcoming episode and series, showrunner Greg Nicotero states:
“It’s a take on an old Mario Bava movie. I always loved Tricia. She plays a strong female executive who finds herself in this untenable supernatural situation that she can’t control.
“I was very ambitious and attacked Creepshow with a lot of tenacity,” says Nicotero. “We were set to do six episodes, but I insisted that we shoot twelve stories in six episodes, because I wanted that Creepshow feel. So, we ended up having to create an entirely new universe, with an entirely new cast, every three and a half days.”
Other cast members confirmed for Creepshow include David Arquette, Dana Gould, Adrienne Barbeau, Giancarlo Esposito, and Tobin Bell. Original Creepshow FX guru Tom Savini is also bringing his talents to the table.
We don’t have a trailer or exact release date at this time, but Nicotero will be participating in a panel at San Diego Comic-Con this Saturday; expect updates here soon after.
