It really feels like I should put some exclamation marks on the end of that title. Mind you it sounds like a William Castle film to me so what do I know?
Anyway, I found this synopsis here:
Shooting commences today on Mega Spider, the nature-run-amok film from Gravedancers director Mike Mendez.
Cameras are rolling in the Los Angeles area and Shock has learned the project will star Heroes' Greg Grunberg and Alexis Peters (Hatchet II).
Here's a synopsis to snack on until more updates come in: Surviving extermination by nuclear eradication, a horrible alien mutation in arachnid form is now growing at an exponential rate and making its way toward downtown Los Angeles. Hot on its spindly heels is a crack military unit with absolute authority, lead by an obsessively driven commander and his beautiful but lethal sidekick.
Unfortunately for them, this mutant spider has an array of deadly defenses including the ability to virtually disappear through camouflage. But the creature’s real adversary quickly turns out to be a hot-shot local exterminator armed only with cocky attitude, some fast one-liners and his home-made gadgets. Joining forces with the military team, this blue-collar hero sets out to exterminate what has now become a monstrous 10-story tall MEGA SPIDER.
What do we reckon, Grunny for blue collar hero or obsessive commander?
ETA - he's the hot-shot exterminator. Whoo!
