New Sci-Fi TV Movie Carny Starts Production
Posted on Tuesday, November 04, 2008 – 05:15 PM
Carny, a sci-fi television film about the monstrous, sideshow attraction of a travelling carnival, began principal photography this week in Ottawa starring Lou Diamond Phillips (Numb3rs, 24) as Atlas, the Sheriff of the small town where the carnival lands. Hidden amongst the fairground workers and sideshow freaks is a Jersey Devil shackled in a cage. When he escapes, the half animal/half devil creature, with a thirst for blood, inflicts terrible revenge on the citizens of the town.
The frightfully haunting story is written by Douglas G. Davis and directed by Sheldon Wilson (Kaw, Shallow Ground). Muse Entertainment and Brava Pictures are producing the picture for the SCI FI Channel in the U.S. and Super Channel in Canada.
Alan C. Peterson (Across the River to Motor City, Smallville) also stars as Cap Caprini, the greedy and murderous owner of the carnival. Domenic Cuzzocrea (ReGenesis) plays his fumbling hechman Quinn. Joe Cobden (Blindness, I’m Not There) is the deputy sheriff and Vlasta Vrana (Human Trafficking) is Owen, the Pentecostal fire-and-brimstone minister, who stirs up the townsfolk against the carnival freaks and “devil”. Simone Elise Girard (ER, Naked Josh) is Samara, the beautiful fortuneteller of the carnival who falls in love with the Sheriff.
