It's long-lived, groan-inducing tradition for actors to try and scoot way into the realm of music (often much to the chagrin of our collective eardrums), but lately there've been more and more cases of the opposite happening. Think Ludacris and the "Fast and Furious" franchise, Mariah Carey in "The Butler" or whatever the kids are calling it these days and, uh, Rihanna in the "Battleship." We could go on ... The point is, musicians are becoming movie people more and more whether we like or not.
For the latest installment of this trend, Slash — yes, the Guns N' Roses guitarist — has produced himself a little horror movie called "Nothing Left to Fear," and today the rocker offered up some face-time himself to introduce this first trailer for it.
Yep, Slash (real name Saul Hudson) serves as as first-time producer on the thriller pic (although he's also got a behind-the-lens credit for the short film "Gotten"), which stars Anne Heche, Clancy Brown, James Tupper, Ethan Peck, Carter Cabassa, Jennifer Stone and Rebekah Brandes, and he's even set to hit Comic-Con tonight to pimp it out.
The film, said to chronicle a family's journey to a better as it gets thwarted by some maniac religious type, has been in the works for two years or so, and may be the first of a string of Slash-based slasher flicks, if he has anything to do with it, as he's set up his own shingle with Slasher Films. Conveniently clever title for the company, no?
Oh, and just for funzies, here's a pic of Slash being oh-so-serious on the set of "Nothing Left to Fear" from the film's Facebook page.
