Horror icon Tony Todd is preparing to step behind the camera for a change, as the Final Destination and Candyman star will write and direct genre pic Catalytic for newly-formed production company Assembly Line (Sushi Girl).
Assembly Line partners Destin Pfaff, Neal Fischer, Kern Saxton and Suren M. Seron will produce the indie film, which “follows a magician as he embarks on a road trip during an impending supernatural apocalypse.”
Catalytic, which is currently casting, will be the first Assembly Line picture to be written by someone outside of its managing members.
Todd, who appeared in Oliver Stone’s Platoon early in his career, has become a genre fan favorite thanks to roles in the Candyman series, The Crow, the Hatchet pics and four of the five films in the “Final Destination” franchise.
