Lesbian Vampire Killers helmer Phil Claydon has been hired by New Line to shoot its '80s action parody Dan Mintner: Badass For Hire
The film is apparently a "light-hearted homage to 1980s action fare including Cobra and Missing In Action.
Our hero sports tight, acid-washed jeans and a matchstick permanently sticking from his mouth as he confronts the issues of kicking arse in today;s world.
"Phil was basically hired off the title alone of his first film," producer Beau Flynn jokes to The Hollywood Reporter.
And fellow prod-bod Tripp Vinson is also a wit for the ages: "And after actually seeing it, we knew he was the man to kick ass on Dan Mintner.
"Plus his film had our two favorite things in cinema: vampires and lesbians."
Unfortunately it was also a badly acted waste of a fun title. Perhaps he'll do better with his second crack at the cinematic whip...
