Machete's Danny Trejo and Spartacus: Blood and Sand's Erin Cummings are in talks to star in the indie biker thriller Tarantula, according to Heat Vision.

Oley Sassone will direct the film with a budget around $2.5 million.

The story centers on a woman (Erin Cummings) who breaks away from a tight-knit biker gang to start a new life but finds that escape is not so easy. Danny Trejo plays the self-styled leader of the gang looking for the woman as well as revenge for his brother's death.

John Kersey wrote the script.

Production is aiming to begin in late November in Detroit.
