Bret “The Hitman” Hart To Star In New Horror Film ‘Tales From The Dead Zone’



Bret “The Hitman” Hart To Star In New Horror Film Tales From The Dead Zone

There have been a few horror films in the past few years that feature some talented wrestlers, most of which have been fairly good. The most obvious wrestler transition to horror / sci-fi film has to be Roddy Piper in They Live, a true John Carpenter classic. More horror / wrestler roles that come to mind include Kane in See No Evil and Mark Henry in Incarnate. Our latest ex-wrestling star to leap over to the horror genre is none other then Bret “The Hitman” Hart!

And not to forget, Tales From the Dead Zone also stars Corey Feldman, and how freakin’ cool will it be to see Hart on screen alongside Feldman in the film?

Official Press Release:

World renowned wrestler Bret “The Hitman” Hart has just signed to star in TALES FROM THE DEAD ZONE. Hart will star as private investigator Tom Jenkings, a one-man wrecking crew who doesn’t always play by all of the rules.

“We are happy to have Mr. Hart’s involvement in our project,” says executive producer Len J. Phillips.

“I wrote the role of Jenkings with Bret Hart in mind, and I am happy he accepted the offer to act in our feature film. Bret Hart is such a fantastic actor,” states director Barry J. Gillis.

TALES FROM THE DEAD ZONE is about a medical examiner who imagines how victims of a horrible car crash may have lived their lives. Prolific Danish actor Kim Sonderholm is playing the medical examiner. “I look forward to flying to Canada; I hear good things. I also like playing this type of tailor-made role, so to speak. The medical examiner’s mind is twisted from seeing so much death on the job. So he’s got quite a vivid imagination that tends to run wild,” chuckles Sonderholm.

Also starring in TALES FROM THE DEAD ZONE is Dakota House, star of the long running Canadian television series (still in world wide syndication) “North of 60.” Rounding out the cast are Len J. Phillips, Madison Nyenhuis, Ken Campbell, Maria Parker, Terrence Van Camp, and Holly Reiter.

The incredibly talented Corey Feldman makes a special appearance in the movie as well, featuring his bandmates in Corey’s Angels. Feldman has just released his new double-CD set ANGELIC 2 THE CORE, which is currently skyrocketing up the Billboard charts.

Tales in the anthology include “LEGEND OF THE PEOPLES DEMON,” “END GAME,” “ROCK STAR LEGACY,” “ROPE A DOPE,” and “BURT THE SAILOR.” The first story, “LEGEND OF THE PEOPLES DEMON,” has been shot and is currently in post-production (you can see its artwork below along with various stills).

TALES FROM THE DEAD ZONE continues shooting in Edmonton, Canada, in December and is expected to be ready for distribution in late 2017.
