Jumping for joy to be a part of this…or…maybe I’m just trying to get away from those damn puppets!
The film is Puppet Master: The Littlest Reich, directed by Sonny Laguna and Tommy Wiklund from a script penned by Bone Tomahawk scribe S. Craig Zahler. Crampton joins previously announced cast members Udo Kier, Serafin Falcon, and Thomas Lennon. The Little Reich is set to begin filming in the Dallas area this week.
Crampton is a horror icon in the truest sense of the term; her lengthy filmography includes turns in Re-Animator, From Beyond, You’re Next, We Are Still Here, and Beyond the Gates. She also has a part in the upcoming, hotly anticipated Death House from director Harrison Smith based on a script from Gunnar Hansen.
We’ll keep you posted on additional Puppet Master news as details emerge. Here’s what we know so far:
