John Schneider is slipping into the director’s chair for a new horror film called Smothered, Shock Till You Drop has learned. Schneider is best known for his turn in The Dukes of Hazzard, but he also starred in a long string of creature feature fare.
Now, he’s at the helm of a “meta” horror film starring Brea Grant, Kane Hodder, Bill Moseley and Roddy Piper.
The film is lensing in Louisiana this month.
We’re told the film finds Hodder, Moseley and Piper playing themselves.
Best known for their on-screen roles, they work the convention circuit making a few bucks signing autographs until they take a gig haunting a trailer park. Ultimately, they wind up being hunted by a maniac.
Hopefully, the script will pack some bite and dish some fun commentary on the genre as well as the personal lives of our favorite boogeymen.
