Update: Rumor: ’2001 Maniacs: Beverly Hellbillys’ Shooting Next Week

Bloody-Disgusting just received quite a healthy tip that Tim Sullivan’s long-delayed sequel to his remake of 2001 Maniacs, currently titled 2001 Maniacs: Beverly Hellbillys, is set to finally go behind camera as early as NEXT WEEK. We are working feverishly to confirm, but companies like IM GLOBAL are being tight-lipped. Rumor has it that Christa Campbell is set to reprise her role as the sexy Milk Maiden, with word that Bill Moseley (TCM 2, The Devil’s Rejects, The Tortured) has joined the cast of crazies. The UPDATE is that Robert Englund will NOT be returning as Mayor Buckman. We’ll do some digging to see what we can find out, remember to keep this filed under rumor until we can confirm. Bevery Hellbillys is the second film in a planned trilogy that would end with The Hillbillys Have Eyes. For the synopsis, read below.2001 Maniacs: Beverly Hellbillys synopsis: After the sheriff refuses to cover up any further for the maniacs causing all the missing persons in the area, they’re forced to hit the road in what’s dubbed the “Pleasant Valley Traveling Road Show,” where the maniacs head across country in hopes of gathering more victims. We’ll follow a young TV crew called the “Road Rascals” as they find themselves mixed up with another one of the maniacs’ deadly festivals.
