2 Headed Shark Attack Casting News - And It's TOO COOL!!!

So, the fine, fine folks over at The Asylum have posted the first cast names for their upcoming creature classic 2 Headed Shark Attack - which I wrote based on a story by Ed DeRuiter for director Christopher Ray - and brace yourself, people, because these are some SPECTACULAR names, the kind of stuff B-movie gold is made of.

First up, in the role of "Babish," the Captain/Professor of the semester-at-sea, we got the great Charlie O'Connell, best known for his work on the TV show "Sliders," "The Bachelor" - on which he was the title fella in question - and films like Dude Where's My Car, The New Guy, and a very cool creature flick I happen to enjoy quite a bit, Kraken, Tentacles of the Deep. Rad flick, and O'Connell gives a great performance in it. Dude's also the brother of Jerry O'Connell, the fat kid from Stand By Me

Next up, in the role of "Anne," Babish's wife and ship's medic, is the sultry and stunning Carmen Electra. I'm gonna say that again, because I like it: Carmen Electra is in a movie I wrote. Adolescent Perry is pretty pleased right now. If you don't know who Carmen Electra is, welcome to Earth or happy 0th birthday. Ms. Electra has been in a few horror films, but up to now they've typically had a comedic slant. I for one am super excited to see her take on a straight-up, thrilling, chilling, blood-letting creature feature. 

And then there's "Kate," a prominent student, who shall be portrayed by one Brooke Hogan, best known for being the fruit of Hulk's loins. Believe it or not, Ms. Hogan already has an Asylum connection: her last film, Sand Sharks, was directed by the one and only Mark Atkins, director of Battle of Los Angeles and the upcoming Dragon Crusaders, along with scores of other films.

Beyond these three, the only other cast members mentioned are Christina Bach Norman and David Gallegos, who will be playing other prominent students.

This one's a big cast, though, so this is are only the first wave of names to break, but the principles roles have been filled and then some by those above. 2 Headed Shark Attack hits DVD on January 17th, 2012.
