After winning the Grand Prize Winner of the Creative Screenwriting Magazine’s AAA Contest and directed the award winning 2001 short film The Flock, writer and director John Regan is getting ready for his first ever feature film, Sherwood Horror. This flick is a modern reworking of Robin Hood with a horror twist, the movie tells the tale of Rob Locksley, an ex-con who returns home after a six-year absence to find his town under the rule of vampires. He must join forces with his old roughneck hunting buddies to wage war against the evil Sheriff and his horde of blood-sucking minions.
Word is DJ Perry (Dean Teaster’s Ghost Town, An Ordinary Killer) will play the lead in Sherwood Horror. “John Regan has crafted a real page-turner of a script and has the creative vision to make Sherwood Horror a unique and exciting film” said Perry.
Other than DJ Perry, Bill McKinney may also join the Sherwood cast:
“Legendary bad-guy actor Bill McKinney (Deliverance, The Outlaw Josey Wales, First Blood) is in talks to play a small but important role as the modern-day version of Richard the Lionheart in “Sherwood Horror” a contemporary set reimagining of the Robin Hood legend with bite.”
Director John Regan commented, “Everyone agrees that having Bill McKinney aboard will kick the film off right.” Co-Producer/actor Terry Jernigan also commented, “You don’t get any tougher than Bill McKinney.”
In addition, Terry Jernigan has also joined the cast. Jernigan is set to play Nottingham, the head vampire who takes on the role of Sheriff in order to control and manipulate the people of Sherwood while his vampire minions feed on the innocent.
