We've also got a little casting news: Among the new "Fools" we have Josh Henderson, Scout-Taylor Compton and Taylor Cole. The IMDb page also offers a bunch of actors' names, none of whom I'm all that familiar with -- which is kind of a shame because the original April Fool's Day was like a who's who of '80s almost-stars. (Clayton Rohner, Amy Steel, Thomas F. Wilson, Ken Olandt, Deborah Foreman, etc.) The new producers could have at least snagged a bunch of horror actors, just to keep in step with the original ... but that's just the nerd in me talking. (That, and I just can't seem to get enough of Erica Leerhsen!)
For those who care to remember more important things: April Fool's Day was about a bunch of WASPy college kids who throw a party at a deserted mansion, but guess what? There's a killer out there! Said the co-directors to THR: "It's kind of more a twisting and turning story ... There's some really good scares in there ... It's pretty much contemporized, with off-beat humor, different settings -- something that would jell with today's audience."
Obviously the old-school horror fans will all be checking in to see what Altieri and Flores do with that ending. Heh.
