This is our candidate for the headline of the day. Tony Todd, Mark Hamill, THE NEVERENDING STORY’s Noah Hathaway and martial arts legend Sonny Chiba have been cast in the revenge flick SUSHI GIRL (which the filmmakers first told us about on our old newsblog here), which has just begun principal photography on the Universal lot.
Shock Till You Drop reported on the Assembly Line film’s start of production. Scripted by Destin Pfaff and director Kern Saxton, SUSHI GIRL also stars CABIN FEVER’s James DeBello and Andy Mackenzie. Here’s the synopsis:
“Fish has spent six years in jail. Six years alone. Six years keeping his mouth shut about the robbery, about the other men involved. The night he is released, the four men he protected with silence celebrate his freedom with a congratulatory dinner. The meal is a lavish array of sushi, served off the naked body of a beautiful young woman. The sushi girl seems catatonic, trained to ignore everything in the room, even if things become dangerous. Sure enough, the four unwieldy thieves can’t help but open old wounds in an attempt to find their missing loot. And they’ll stop at nothing to get it as they torture Fish for information and reconstruct the past. They quickly discover that the facts don’t all add up, but what they don’t realize is that the truth is lying right in front of them…”
Adds Pfaff, “Five friends reunite six years after a diamond job gone wrong to eat sushi off a naked girl. Nothing is as it seems and nothing ever was. Needless to say, being ’70s horror boys at heart, torture, madness and violence ensues. You know, your typical high-octane family film!”
