Syfy’s newest creature feature is amassing yet another pop-culture cauldron of familiar names.
The network’s upcoming Bigfoot — which already stars the previously announced power team of Danny Bonaduce (The Partridge Family) and Barry Williams (The Brady Bunch) — is adding the following actors: Howard Hesseman (Head of the Class), Sherilyn Fenn (Twin Peaks), Andre Royo (The Wire), and rock legend Alice Cooper (School’s Out). Bruce Davidson is directing.
The story: When Bigfoot is discovered in South Dakota, two life-long rivals (Williams and Bonaduce) battle to capture the creature — one to exploit it and one to save it.
The movie will debut later this year. My only quibble: The name. Just… Bigfoot? Not Bigfoot: Toes of Terror? Not Bigfoot Stomp-Squatch? No Bigfoot-aconda? Here’s our previous list of Syfy’s most awesomely bad movie titles.
And here’s a pic from the Bigfoot set, of Mr. Cooper:
