Actor Christian Slater is best-remembered by many genre fans for getting payback in HEATHERS, and now he’s involved in PLAYBACK, a currently lensing independent horror film.
Variety reports that Slater is playing a malevolent cop in the movie, written and being directed by actor-turned-filmmaker Michael A. Nickles (whose credits include the revenge chiller XII) in Grand Rapids, MI. The story concerns a group of high-schoolers who uncover an evil presence that has afflicted their town in the past and begins possessing them via video playback, with Slater’s evil officer Frank Lyons playing a key role in revealing it. The cast also includes Johnny Pacar, Toby Hemingway, Jonathan Keltz, Alessandra Torresani, Ambyr Childers, Jennifer Missoni, Lisa Todd, BUFFY THE VAMPIRE SLAYER’s Mark Metcalf and Daryl “Chill” Mitchell, with John M. Bennett and Lawrence Robbins producing.
