Bloody Disgusting has learned that beautiful scream queen Danielle Harris (Halloween, Stake Land) has officially been cast as the new “Marybeth” in Adam Green’s Hatchet 2, which begins lensing early next year. “She’s the new Marybeth,” Green tells Bloody Disgusting. “Everything that this movie is trying to be is to get better…case in point is that it brings fans what they want and is going to make ‘Hatchet 2’ even better. [There’s] a new[ly designed] Victor Crowley and the whole cast is f*cking amazing! To have another icon as a leading role is enormous.” The sequel follows Harris as Marybeth as she escapes from the clutches of Victor Crowley, learns the truth about his curse, and heads back into the haunted New Orleans swamp to seek revenge for her family and kill Crowley once and for all… Read on for a bit more from Green about Victor Crowley’s new look.
“Make-up tests on Kane [Hodder] begin in about 10 days,” Green says about the new Victory Crowley. “It’s definitely modified, but looks the same just much more realistic and less rubber suit looking. It’s a much more complicated appliance job. He’s down for it though.”
Hodder is an expert when it comes to make-up appliance as he’s taken on the role of Jason Voorhees in four Friday the 13th films.
Starring alongside Kane Hodder and Danielle Harris are Tony Todd, R.A. Mihailoff and John Carl Buechler.
