NEAL IN FOR BERRYMAN IN SATAN'S PLAYGROUND
Filmmaker Dante (HORROR) Tomaselli contacted Fango with the news that Edwin Neal, the original TEXAS CHAINSAW MASSACRE?s hitchhiker, has joined the cast of Tomaselli?s new chiller SATAN?S PLAYGROUND, replacing originally cast Michael Berryman. ?Due to scheduling conflicts, Michael will not be able to be in SATAN?S PLAYGROUND,? Tomaselli tells Fango, ?though we both look forward to working together in the future.? And the director is thrilled to have Neal taking over the role. ?I thought his demented performance in [CHAINSAW] was?hands down?one of the scariest portrayals of evil of all time,? Tomaselli says.
Also recently added to the PLAYGROUND cast is Ron Millkie, the hostile cop from the first FRIDAY THE 13TH who also appeared in Larry Cohen?s RETURN TO SALEM?S LOT. SATAN?S PLAYGROUND, which also stars Felissa (SLEEPAWAY CAMP) Rose and Ellen (EVIL DEAD) Sandweiss, begins shooting in New Jersey?s Pine Barrens region December 5.
