Exclusive: FARSCAPE’s Ben Browder to star in & direct BAD KIDS GO 2 HELL, teaser trailer debut!


We’ve previously had the pleasure of posting some rather cool exclusives regarding the BAD KIDS GO TO HELL comic book movie adaptation, even debuting their first trailer right here on the site. That film had good success, and has already become a bit of a cult classic among both comic book and horror fans. The inclusion of iconic actors like Judd Nelson and a geek god like Ben Browder certainly didn’t hurt either. It’s perhaps inevitable that a sequel would be in the works (the comic book sequel has already been out and done rather well), and today we have some exclusive announcements to make regarding the next big screen adaptation. FARSCAPE star Ben Browder is returning to once again play the mysterious “Max” in the second film (titled BAD KIDS GO 2 HELL), but the big news is he’ll also be behind the camera making his directorial debut. That’s right, Browder is acting as director on this installment, which is scheduled to be shot in Dallas in the next few months. The remaining cast is being kept under wraps, though we expect some names to trickle out in a few days. You can read the official press release about Ben’s involvement below, but to really get your juices flowing check out the first official teaser trailer for the film (another Bigfanboy.com exclusive) and tell us your thoughts in the comments:

Ben Browder
Robert Benedict “Ben” Browder was born in Memphis, Tennessee. He holds a BS in psychology from Furman University and studied drama at Central School of Speech and Drama in London, England. Browder was first widely exposed to the American and Canadian television viewing audience as the recurring character of “Sam” on the series Party of Five. In 1999, Jim Henson productions teamed with the Sci-Fi channel to produce Farscape, where Browder was cast to play the main character, American astronaut John Crichton. The television series, which was filmed in Australia, had a run for 5 seasons garnering fandom around the world. Browder later went on to star in Stargate SG-1 for 3 seasons and then reprised his role as Crichton in the mini-series Farscape: The Peacekeeper Wars. Browder is scheduled to return to the comic-con and pop-culture convention circuit across the globe along with the Bad Kids franchise to reach out to fans and promote the movie.
