MAB Studios has announced Witchula, which is to be directed by Marcus Bradford from a screenplay co-penned with Pat Kusnadi (The Id, The Ringing, Because We Care).
Witches, werewolves, vampires and more will be featured, with the title character, Witchula, being the first, witch/vampire hybrid ever to hit the big screen.
Horror icon Maria Olsen (Paranormal Activity: The Ghost Dimension, Southbound, Lords of Salem, “American Horror Story”) as the title character.
Scream king, Bill Oberst Jr. (Criminal Minds) is also set to star.
Rounding out the preliminary cast members are Eileen Dietz and Marilyn Ghigliotti. Dietz, another horror staple is best known for her portrayal of the demon, in the classic film, The Exorcist. Ghigliotti is also an icon, but not in the horror world: Marilyn is best known as Veronica, the estranged girlfriend in Kevin Smith’s Clerks. In recent years Ghigliotti has made her mark in independent scifi and horror as well, starring in films like Alien Armageddon, Starship Rising and the soon to be released Rogue Warrior.
Other producers attached to the project include horror veterans Matt Chassin (Krampus the Christmas Devil, Seeking Valentina) and John Blythe (My Amityville Horror, One Day When the Rains Fell).
