Evidently, the eat local movement applies to cannibal movies.
The mutant cannibal horror franchise Wrong Turn 4 is currently shooting in Birds Hill Park and has mostly cast Winnipeg actors in its starring roles, according to a publicist for 20th Century Fox Home Entertainment.
The film also held a casting call for Brandon extras over the weekend, and will shoot a flashback scene here starting about Feb. 28.
But the roles of two of the film’s mutant killers are being kept in the family. The role of "Three Finger" is being played by Sean Skene and "One Eye" is being played by his actor-brother Daniel Skene. Their father Rick Skene is the film’s stunt co-ordinator.
Rounding out the killer trio is Winnipeg actor Scott Johnson as "Sawtooth."
Playing a potential victim of the deranged locivores is Winnipeg actress Jennifer Pudavick as Kenia, whose resume has a number of horror offerings including Wishmaster III, Wishmaster IV and The Plague as well as the TV series Cashing In.
Tenika Davis, one of the first contestants of the series Canada’s Next Top Model, also stars in the film, which is being directed by Declan O’Brien, who lensed the last instalment, Wrong Turn 3: Left for Dead, in Bulgaria.
About 400 people turned out for the casting call in Brandon, which was held on Saturday.
