Nathan FillionNathan Fillion - ’Slither’ Movie - Chud.com On The Set Report

I am psyched about James Gunn’s directorial debut, Slither. It’s supposed to be a body horror film the likes of which we haven’t seen in about a decade or more. And word on the street is that the script is pretty damn good as well.
Filming on the picture has begun in the Great White North, and Troma honcho Lloyd Kaufman headed there for a cameo role. Gunn, who you probably know best for his work on Scooby Doo and the remake of Dawn of the Dead, got his start with Troma, on Tromeo and Juliet. Making a brief speech to the cast and crew, Gunn said, "I owe my career to Lloyd Kaufman."
Among the cast is CHUD.com fave Nathan Fillion, star of the upcoming Serenity movie (see, I didn’t say anything bad about it. Now whatcha gonna whine about, Whedonesque?) and one time evil priest Caleb on Buffy the Vampire Slayer. He may be drawing on some of his Two Guys, A Girl and a Pizza Place experience as well.
Lloyd came home with some snaps from the set, which I believe are the first - and the first especially to have Fillion in costume (that’s him in sherriff garb above, with a Troma tee-d Gunn). Head over to Troma’s site for the rest of the details, including Lloyd explaining how Scooby Doo wasn’t a big career leap for Gunn after Tromeo and Juliet.
