Hack/Slash Movie Gets Lead Slasher

Nick Principe in "Laid To Rest"
"Hack/Slash" is a comic from Devil's Due Publishing that probably flies under the radar of most.  Cassie Hack had a rough childhood and is now hunting 'slashers' with the help of a man (she at first mistook for a slasher) named Vlad.  I think this movie can be important as the horror genre isn't what it used to be.  With horror movies often geared towards the PG-13 crowd, the recent movies have lost their edge.  Hack/Slash seems like it'd be true to the slasher film genre.

Fangoria is reporting that creature performer, Nick Principe (las seend in "Laid To Rest"), has been cast as the lead slasher in the movie.
“As of right now, I’m playing the lead slasher out of four or five, with the possibility of playing another,” he tells us. “I can’t tell you his name or stats just yet, but he will be his own character, not based on anyone from the comic. He was completely developed by me and Todd Lincoln, including one of the craziest backstories ever for a killer. It’s the biggest-budget slasher flick I’ve ever heard of, so a lot of the details as far as who will play Cassie Hack and Vlad are super-hush-hush—but it’s between three very high-profile actors.”
Sounds good.  The casting of Cassie could be crucial.  Despite the success of the comic and it's strong following, a high-profile actor (especially for Cassie) could be what this movie needs.  The success of the movie will also give the underrated comic the attention it deserves.

I was thinking that too.  She's been rumored for Fathom, Tomb Raider, ...what else?  Maybe she'll be rumored to be Captain America or something crazy like that.

Haha don't be hating on Megan Fox...she isnt that bad of an actress....I can think of plenty who are far worse than her.

You have to see her in Episodes of "Hope and Faith." She's playing the  "hot daughter" which is obviously not a stretch for her, but she fails miserably.

I don't watch Hope and Faith???I wouldnt know...she's been decent in some movies in my opinion. She's not any worse than Jessica Alba or a litany of other popular actressses today.

there's always going to be some one worse, just like there will always be some one better... but she had trouble basically playing herself

awesome, im still really anxious about Cassie though.. they really need to make sure they nail her otherwise the whole film is screwed

I agree.  "Hack/Slash" isn't a comic that a lot of people have heard of or read.  A movie adaption can't rely on the readers to make it a success.  But they do need to cast it properly as to not insult the actual readers yet have someone with draw to bring in people to see it.
