Steven R. Monroe to Direct Hole in the Desert

ON

Director Steven R. Monroe’s (I Spit On Your Grave) next feature film will be the revenge-action-thriller Hole in the Desert. The independently financed feature will begin principal photography in June.

The film is a violent, edgy ride focusing on the forlorn Reagan Tyler, a man who troubled by visions and premonitions that ultimately lead him to a small desert town. It’s there that Reagan meets the beautiful and mysterious Monika, a young woman who turns out to have been killed the night before he even met her! Reagan is then forced to put the puzzle together and help Monika with her revenge on the killers of her younger sister.

“All involved are very excited that we are doing this film”, Monroe, who also directed ‘It Waits,’ ‘Complacent’ and ‘House of 9,’ said. “For me to have the opportunity to write and direct, and then on top of that be a producer makes it all that much better. Though it was also a great project, this film is very different from ‘I Spit On Your Grave.’ We are assembling a great cast for ‘Hole in the Desert’; Cerina Vincent is already onboard to play the tough, beautiful and vengeful Monika.”

“I am just thrilled to be a part of this”, says Vincent, known for her roles in such films as ‘Cabin Fever’ and ‘Not Another Teen Movie’ and last seen in Monroe’s acclaimed ‘Complacent.’ “It’s truly an honor to work with director Steven R. Monroe again. His script is incredible– it’s got wit, edge, and depth… His vision for this will make for an edgy, sexy, suspenseful ride with moments of tenderness and some intense violence…”

Monroe says of Vincent, “This film is a departure from what people know of her and I am confident that she will be awesome.”

Monroe says the rest of the cast will be revealed shortly and that the film will be completed the beginning of September 2011.
