Dante (SATAN’S PLAYGROUND) Tomaselli gave Fango the word that although his new project THE OCEAN had hit a few financial snags, it now looks like the movie will be proceeding soon.
Scripted by Fango’s Michael Gingold and Tomaselli, THE OCEAN will star Margot Kidder as Cathy, a medium who travels to Puerto Rico to reunite with her troubled family, while receiving psychic portents of an apocalyptic aquatic disaster. Vincent (THE SOPRANOS) Pastore is now set to play the role of Cathy’s husband, replacing Tom Atkins, whom Tomaselli still plans to give a cameo role to. The movie has its official website here, and you can also read more about it here.
Meanwhile, thanks to a fan petition that got started over at the Guts and Gory fright site, Tomaselli has been talking with the folks at Trancas International about directing the ninth installment in the HALLOWEEN series.
