Previously known as With Teeth, K. Asher Levin’s vampire horror-comedy Slayers has snagged a killer cast including Tom Jane (1922, The Punisher), Malin Akerman (Watchmen, The Final Girls), and Abigail Breslin (Scream Queens, Zombieland).
Akerman tells Deadline: “I’m so excited to get back on set and can’t think of a better group to share the screen with during this unique time! When this script came to me, I immediately knew I wanted to be a part of it and now I get to play this fun, vampire villain – a first for me!”
The flick follows a group of internet influencers who are drawn to a reclusive, seductive billionaire’s mansion (Malin Akerman), only to find themselves trapped in the lair of an evil vampire. The only way out is to be saved by a famous online gamer (Kara Hayward) and an old school vampire hunter (Tom Jane).
Breslin will play a smart-mouthed fitness guru who faces off against the vampires.
Jane, Breslin, and Akerman’s o-stars include Kara Hayward (Moonrise Kingdom), Lydia Hearst (The Haunting Of Sharon Tate), and Jack Donnelly (Atlantis).
Levin (Cougars Inc) produces with Breslin, Daniel Cummings and Zack Imbrogno. Jane and Akerman will executive produce with Courtney Lauren Penn, Matthew Helderman, Luke Taylor, Grady Craig, Clay Epstein, and Josh Monkarsh.
