The film stars Danny Trejo (Machete), Mischa Barton (“The O.C.”), Dave Bautista (Riddick), Eric Roberts (The Dark Knight), Drake Bell (“Drake & Josh”), Brooke Hogan (“Hogan Knows Best”), Tori Black (Not Another Celebrity Movie), and Marisa Lauren (“Superhero Movie”), with the voice of Andy Dick (“News Radio”) as the 'L.A. Slasher'.
Produced by Jeffrey Wright and Daniel Sollinger (Girls Against Boys), L.A. Slasher is a biting, social satire about reality TV and the glorification of people who are famous for simply being famous. It explores why it has become acceptable and even admirable for people to become influential and wealthy based on no merit or talent - purely through notoriety achieved through shameful behavior. Incensed by the tabloid culture which celebrates it, the ‘L.A. Slasher’ publicly abducts a series of reality TV stars while the media and general public in turn begin to question if society is better off without them.
Says producer Wright, “We are really quite pleased to work with Circus Road Films in bringing our film to audiences. Given the L.A. Slasher’s growing social media presence – the Twitter page alone has 75 thousand followers and is growing every day - there is clearly an interest in this subject matter, and I think audiences will love our director’s clever and visually kinetic examination of America’s cultural obsession with faux-celebrity.”
Sales agents Glen Reynolds and Sebastian Twardosz will be handling the film for Circus Road Films. Twardosz adds, " We’re very happy to help bring L.A. Slasher to audiences. It’s a clever and appealing concept. Our hope is that it becomes iconic."
