Dee Snider, frontman of heavy metal legends TWISTED SISTER, is set to begin production on the feature film "Strangeland: Disciple" later this year, the much-anticipated follow-up to "Strangeland" (1998), which he wrote and starred in as antagonist Captain Howdy.
His partners in the project, Nehst Studios, have put out an open casting call through Screentest.biz to be a part of the film starring Snider and Robert Englund (Freddie Krueger of the "Nightmare On Elm Street" series).
"We are conducting a national casting call to find actors and extras to be in the film with Dee," explains Nehst head Larry Meistrich. "This is the best way for people to audition. The goal of this talent search is to give aspiring actors access to participate and work on a really high-profile project."
"It's like a national outreach project," explains Snider. "We will be looking for talent in the body modification and fetish world. Everywhere I go now, every guy and girl with tattoos and big holes in their ears wants to be in my movie!"
Parts of "Strangeland: Disciple" will take place in a secret society whose inhabitants party hard and strange at an aptly-named dungeon called "The Torture Garden". "It's a hardcore body modification and fetish scene, filled with all kinds of freaks," Snider says of the venue. "We're shooting for an NC-17 rating right out of the box. I want enthusiasts from all over the country to be a part of it!"
