With SUPERNATURAL’s Jensen Ackles and Jaime King already set to star in the remake of MY BLOODY VALENTINE, what could possibly make the movie any cooler other than making it in 3D? Well, genre veteran TOM ATKINS, of course! Moviehole.net is reporting that the actor who "thrills me" will be in the new redux. Atkins has appeared in several horror favorites including NIGHT OF THE CREEPS, THE FOG, CREEPSHOW, ESCAPE FROM NEW YORK and many, many more. Shooting starts soon in Pittsburgh with non-horror fan Patrick Lussier directing. (Hell, he supposedly voiced his contempt with the genre while editing WES CRAVEN’S NEW NIGHTMARE, yet he gets to keep directing genre projects. Go figure?!) January 23, 2009 is the proposed release date for MY BLOODY VALENTINE 3D.
Gotta love ATKINS! The ICONS crew does!
