JoeBlo.com reports that Minnie Driver (Grosse Pointe Blank) has joined the cast of Slasher-musical Stage Fright (no relation to the 1987 Slasher).
We’d already reported that Meat Loaf was attached to the Jerome Sable film, with Canadian Allie MacDonald in the lead role, and now, with Driver added to an already intriguing mix, Stage Fright is looking to one of the more promising upcoming Slashers.
Stage Fright has been described as Glee meets Scream, with MacDonald playing the role of Camilla, who works at a musical theatre and lands a lead role in the production. Soon, though, the members of the troupe begin dying off, murdered by the Metal Killer, a nutjob who screams death metal as he slashes through the musical theatre snobs.
I don’t think I’ll ever tire of writing up that synopsis.
