Danny Trejo and Erin Cummings in Talks for Low Budget Biker Thriller TARANTULA

     September 15, 2010


Danny Trejo (Machete) and Erin Cummings (Spartacus: Blood and Sand) are in negotiations to star in the independent biker thriller Tarantula.  According to Heat Vision, the story centers on Cummings’ character, “who breaks away from a tight-knit biker gang to start a new life but finds that escape is not so easy.”  Trejo would play the “self-styled leader” of the biker gang that makes that escape unexpectedly difficult.

Oley Sassone (Xena: Warrior Princess) will direct from a debut script by longtime construction coordinator John Kersey.  To facilitate his segue from the art department to the writers’ room, Kersey will call in a series of favors from his friends in the field — editors, sound designers, and the like.  Kersey will also produce with his wife Jennifer under their Two of a Kind Productions banner: they hope to start filming in Detroit by November, with a budget around $2.5 million.
