So there’s this movie called The Bleeding that’s about to go into production. And it’s about a former soldier who encounters a family of vampires in, according to Variety, a “chemical weapons factory-turned-nightclub.” Seriously.
And it has a fairly odd and confusing but strangely alluring collection of cast members. Michael Madsen. Vinny Jones. DMX. Armand Assante. Pittsburgh Slim. Kat Von D. What. the. fuck.
The film will be directed by Charles Picerni, Sr., a guy who has been doing stunts and bit-part acting for almost 50 years. It’s written by Lance Lane, who wrote/directed the Thomas Jane hustler movie Junked. It’s being produced by Michael Tadross, Jr. (not to be confused with his father).
All this screams direct-to-DVD, but that may not be the case. Frank Capra III (The Bucket List, Rumor Has It…) will be exec producing, and he doesn’t get involved with movies intending to go that route.
Whichever route The Bleeding takes and whatever its quality, I’ll be checking it out just because I am completely fascinated by that cast. And because I really like its silly title.
It shoots next month, so hopefully we won’t have to wait too long to find out how this all works out.
