Wondering what James Tucker, the director behind AUNT ROSE, SKINNED ALIVE and PINK EYE, has been up to as of late? After finally wrapping up on FLICKS CHICKS (a non-horror romantic comedy), Tucker is returning to directing that which we drool for, more edgy horror. This time its via a vampire web-based series called THE TURNING. Tucker broke the news to Bloody-Disgusting and had this to say: “I am just finishing pre-productions and casting on a web series called, The Turning. The first cast meeting is scheduled for the second week on November. It’s a dark, character driven story about a woman who is bitten by a vampire and struggles with the transformation. If all goes well, I plan to shoot the last two weeks in November. After the web series run of twelve, 10 minute episodes, my plan is to create a feature length, horror film that picks up where the web series leaves off.” Newcomers Yvette Bass and Arielle Brachfeld (Return of the Ghostbusters) have signed on thus far.
First episodes will be posted at www.onwebproductions.com
