STORMARE JOINS 2001 MANIACS
Actor Peter Stormare has joined the cast of director Tim Sullivan?s 2001 MANIACS. Best-known for roles in THE LOST WORLD: JURASSIC PARK, FARGO and BRUISER, Stormare appears in the film?s opening moments as Professor Ackerman, in scenes replacing those previously shot with John Landis in the same role. ?We originally filmed Landis and [TWO THOUSAND MANIACS! producer] David Friedman in Atlanta,? Sullivan tells Fango. ?But the scene wasn?t ?big enough? to start the film, so we reshot it in LA, in a real classroom. But thanks to DVD, you will eventually see the deleted scene.?
?Peter was kind enough to do a cameo for us, and he?s hilarious,? 2001 MANIACS producer Eli Roth adds. For the first news on the film, see FANGORIA #232.
