SDCC 07: Taylor-Compton Plans ‘April Fool’s Day’ Joke

Bloody-Disgusting learned exclusively this afternoon that Scout Taylor-Compton will be playing the lead role in the Butcher Brothers remake of April Fool’s Day, which she calls “Mean Girls crossed with horror.” Scout also tell us the plan is to make the film rated R. She can be seen in Rob Zombie’s remake of Halloween on August 31 from Dimension Films. In the original a group of eight college friends gather together at an island mansion belonging to heiress Muffy St. John to celebrate their final year of school. They soon discover that each has a hidden secret from their past which is revealed, and soon after, they turn up dead. Yet, are they really dead? Or is it just part of some very real and cruel April Fool’s jokes? The hostess, Muffy, is the only one who apparently knows what’s going on. But then again, is it really her doing the killing?
