Shooting is now under way for Mike Mendez’s creature feature Mega Spider. Filming on location in Los Angeles, some new casting news has just been announced. Alexis Peters (Hatchet 2) and Greg Grunberg (Heroes) have also joined the cast to do battle with a giant spider! Here is the synopsis:
Surviving extermination by nuclear eradication, a horrible alien mutation in arachnid form is now growing at an exponential rate and making its way toward downtown Los Angeles. Hot on its spindly heels is a crack military unit with absolute authority, led by an obsessively driven commander and his beautiful but lethal sidekick. Unfortunately for them, this mutant spider has an array of deadly defenses including the ability to virtually disappear through camouflage. But the creature’s real adversary quickly turns out to be a hot-shot local exterminator armed only with cocky attitude, some fast one-liners and his homemade gadgets. Joining forces with the military team, this blue-collar hero sets out to exterminate what has now become a monstrous 10-story tall MEGA SPIDER.
