MEWES, WAGNER AND NELSON JOIN CORPORATE VAMPIRE COMEDY
CLERKS star JASON MEWES is set to team up with AUSTIN POWERS actor ROBERT WAGNER and THE BREAKFAST CLUB's JUDD NELSON for a new vampire comedy. The trio are among the stars of NETHERBEAST INCORPORATED, the movie debut of director/producers DEAN and BRIAN RONALDS. The film is "a comic look at office politics through the eyes of a 200 year-old pencil-pushing vampire". Netherbeast Incorporated, which starts shooting in Arizona next week (14AUG06), is based on the Ronalds Brothers' award-winning short film THE NETHERBEAST OF BERM-TECH INDUSTRIES INC, which claimed the Best Screenplay honour at the London International Festival of Science Fiction and Fantastic Film and Best Comedy Short prize at the Long Island Film Expo. The Ronalds Brothers were also named Best Arizona Filmmakers of the Year at the 2005 Phoenix Film Festival.
