Production Weekly reports that Taryn Manning and Wes Bently will topline the indie comedy Weirdsville, for director Allen Moyle.
Willem Wenneker's script is set in the small prairie-town of Weedsville, crammed with freaky oddballs, strange occurrences, and not a lot of ambition. Dexter and Royce are your typical slackers. Chances are they would have continued to drift through life in a dope-filled haze if Matilda, Royce's girlfriend, hadn't O.D.'d on their stash. Knowing that calling the police will only land them in jail, Dexter and Royce decide the only thing to do is bury her in the basement of the Drive-In theater which is closed for the winter. That's the bad news. The good news is that somehow Matilda wakes from her coma and in the distraction she and the boys manage to escape. The Satanists think tehy brought Matilda back from the dead, and they want her back.
Production begins at the end of next month in Toronto.
