GOETZ TAKES AIM AT HORROR ROLE
New York?s Daily News reports that Bernhard Goetz, who made headlines 20 years ago as the 'Subway Vigilante' who shot four youths who had threatened him, is now packing heat on screen for a NYC-lensed vampire movie called SILVER NIGHT. In the movie, written, produced and directed by Glenn (1996?s NIGHT) Andreiev, Goetz portrays a nutritionist who advises a gang of Manhattan bloodsuckers, and at one point shoots another character. He reportedly protested that his screen pistol 'was not suitable because it was too tiny,' cinematographer Vernon Gravdal tells the paper, and also advised his co-stars?including STREET TRASH writer/producer Roy Frumkes?on proper gun use. SILVER NIGHT is now entering postproduction for a planned release next winter/spring.
