Anna Faris (Smiley Face) is in talks to join the cast of "Burn Off" a new horror comedy. Already attached to the film is Jason Mewes (Clerks), Elizabeth Berkly (Showgirls) and Tony Todd (Candy Man). The film will start production soon in Mexico with a budget of $25 million. The rumor is that Rob Zombie may end up directing. People may not see Zombie as a comedy director, yet "House of 1000 Corpses" did have dark comedic moments. After reading the plot outline Zombie could be a good fit. Another hint that he may be brought in is that T-Rex has yet to be even written along with his exit of the Halloween franchise.
"Peter Hansen, a fitness obsessed man whose once thin wife has gotten fat. To help them both achieve the perfect weight, he begins using a diet drink called “Burn Off” which doesn’t work as advertised. The user loses weight, but also his mind. The drink turns Peter into a sadistic murderer who keeps his wife a locked in the basement."
