Now filming in Pontiac, Detroit is Sucker, which is being produced by the Los Angeles-based Big Screen Entertainment. The Michael Mansasseri (Babysitter Wanted) directed film “is about a man who becomes part mosquito and rescues the object of his affection by sucking the blood of her assailants.” Uh, instantly amazing?
“It’s a fun, tongue in cheek film about a man who suddenly becomes part mosquito,” producer Stephen Eckelberry said, describing the plot. “He starts sucking the blood out of his victims.”
Here’s the full plot crunch:
Lovable loser Jim Crawley is having a pretty bad day. He gets fired from his job at the Nuclear Power Plant he’s worked at for 11 years, his car gets impounded, and he discovers his wife is having an affair with his ex co-worker. To make matters worse, Jim gets abducted by an evil scientist who is conducting tests of a controversial vaccine against a deadly virus that is spreading across the planet. It turns out that years of being exposed to nuclear radiation and a serum full of a rare insect DNA doesn’t mix very well with Jim…..he mutates into a six foot, blood sucking, half human, half-insect that sets out for revenge. The film is a mix of comic book adventure/live action/3d animation and stylized photography.
