If you read Bigfanboy.com you know we’re following the comic book movie adaptation BAD KIDS GO TO HELL pretty closely. We broke the exclusive that FARSCAPE and STARGATE SG-1 actor Ben Browder had been cast as “Max”, the school janitor, showed you some behind the scenes on set photos, and today we’ve got some official publicity shots from the film which look (like everything else so far) pretty great. The movie is currently shooting in Austin at Spiderwood Studios, and things are looking good. As we’ve said before, if you’ve never read the graphic novel, you might not fully appreciate some of these shots, but trust us when we say as fans of the source material this is coming along nicely:
As you can see, BAD KIDS GO TO HELL is definitely on our radar. Outside of Nelson and Browder, the film’s cast also includes Cameron Deane Stewart (“So Undercover,” “That’s What I Am,” “iCarly,” “Justice for Natalee”), Ali Faulkner (“The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn,” “Boneboys,” “Humans vs. Zombies,” “Maggie’s Passage”), Marc Donato (“Sick Boy,” “The Final,” “White Oleander,” “Pay it Forward,” “Billy Madison,” “DeGrassi: The Next Generation”), Roger Edwards (“Freelancers,” “Spy Kids 4,” “Stop Loss”), Amanda Alch (“Moon Ring,” “When Zachary Beaver Came to Town,” “Birdie and Bogey”), and newly cast actresses Augie Duke and Chanel Ryan. BKGTH will be directed by Matt Spradlin and produced by Barry Wernick. Be on the lookout for more news soon, and hopefully some behind-the-scenes video and interviews as well. It’s great to see a production like this getting underway in Texas, so we’ll be watching it with great enthusiasm.
The Breakfast Club meets The Grudge in this sexy, dark comedy-thriller! Six prep school kids from Crestview Academy, home to the spoiled offspring of society’s elite, find themselves stuck in detention on a frightfully dark and stormy Saturday afternoon. During their 8 hour incarceration, each of the six kids falls victim to a horrible “accident” until only one of them remains. As each of these spoiled rich kids bites the dust, the story takes on a series of humorous and frantic twists and turns. Is one of the kids secretly evening the school’s social playing field? Or have the ghosts of prestigious Crestview Academy finally come to punish the school’s worst (and seemingly untouchable) brats? One thing is for sure…Daddy’s money can’t save them now. (Based on the best selling indie comic book series/graphic novel of the same name)
