Peter Stickles (Evil Bong 3-D, Strangers with Candy) and Latin for Truth frontman Charles Ray Hastings Jr. have officially boarded the cast of the upcoming UnHollywood/Slasher Studios feature Man Kills, Jesus Saves.
Set in 1988 West Virginia, ‘Man Kills, Jesus Saves’ centers around a Bible Studies camp for children led by the ever ‘hip’ youth pastor Duane Sheppard Jr. As he and his collective of Christ-loving youth counselors begin setting up camp for the season, a series of strange happenings occur that rattle the members of the site and, in turn, lead to several murders committed by an unidentified killer.
In the midst of this, Duane and the camp itself face the potential of scandal and condemnation due to long held rumors of inhumane treatment and ‘gay correction’ therapies surfacing in The Village Voice. Duane struggles to cover up the murders to avoid further bad publicity and attempts find the killer before things escalate to the point of no return.
Stickles is slated to play a drug-hunting entrepreneur by the name of Aras and Hastings will take on the role of Bobby Jon Reinhold, previously announced to be played by Practice Makes Perfect star Michael Malkiewicz. Malkiewicz and Practice Makes Perfect co-star Alex Hand left the project in May due to scheduling conflicts.
Written and helmed by Practice Makes Perfect director Jayme Karales, Man Kills, Jesus Saves will enter production this August, pending the success of a Kickstarter campaign set to begin June 10th.
