Deviant Pictures, the company behind the controversial and critically acclaimed movie THE HOSPITAL, begins production on their new horror/comedy FAT CHANCE in Marion, Alabama. The movie features Hollywood veteran Dick Warlock (HALLOWEEN 2, JAWS, THE THING), WWF/WWE superstar Al Snow (OVERTIME), Playboy model Bree Olson (THE HUMAN CENTIPEDE 3), Daniel Emery Taylor (RETURN OF THE SWAMP THING, ROAD TRIP), Jim O’Rear (THE DEAD MATTER, STAR TREK 4, ABC’s NASHVILLE), and Scott Tepperman (GHOST HUNTERS INTERNATIONAL).
FAT CHANCE can best be described as THE BIGGEST LOSER meets FRIDAY THE 13th. When ten overweight men sign up to appear on a weight loss reality show taking place at a “fat camp” in the woods, they get more than they bargained for when contestants begin to disappear in mysterious ways.
Deviant Pictures owners Jim O’Rear and Daniel Emery Taylor, who are jointly producing and directing the film from a script written by Taylor, state, “We’re staying true to our horror roots with FAT CHANCE. When we made THE HOSPITAL we wanted to push the boundaries of some particularly taboo subjects in our society and create a disturbing and uncomfortable film, but with FAT CHANCE we’re taking it back to the campy, fun style of the early 1980’s films we grew up on, such as SLEEPAWAY CAMP, MEATBALLS, and FRIDAY THE 13th. Lots of laughs, tons of excitement, and gallons upon gallons of blood!”
Second unit production has begun in Destin, Florida, with principal photography beginning in Marion, Alabama, the first week of September.
