Tyler Labine and Alan Tudyk are starring in “Tucker and Dale vs. Evil,” a genre-bending indie horror comedy being directed by Eli Craig.
Labine stars as Dale alongside Tudyk as Tucker, two good-natured hillbillies mistakenly accused of being psycho killers by a group of college kids camping at the same lake where the hillbillies have just acquired a dilapidated cabin as their “summer home.” Katrina Bowen of “30 Rock” also stars.
The movie is shooting in Calgary, Alberta. Eden Rock Media, Kintop/Reliance, Urban Island and Looby Lou are the companies behind the flick, which is being produced by Deepak Nayar, Morgan Jurgenson, Albert Klychak and Rosanne Milliken.
Executive producing are Thomas Augsberger (“Mr. Brooks”) and Mark Ryan, who was involved in the financing of “Layer Cake.”
Nicolas Chartier’s Voltage Pictures is handling foreign sales, with Sony U.K. prebuying U.K. rights and Andre Boissier’s Revolutionary Media acquiring rights for Eastern Europe.
Labine (“Sons of Tucson”) is repped by CAA; Tudyk (“Dollhouse”) is repped by Gersh. Jurgenson is repped by attorney Rob Szymanski.
