Hack/Slash Movie Attaches a Director and #AllisonScag4Cassie Charges on Again

We’re back, Baby!

Hack/slash signs director fans still want Allison Scagliotti for CassieWhen we last left the #AllisonScag4Cassie movement, the Hack/Slash film was in what they politely call “Development Hell.”  That meant it would be a safe bet that the film would either never be made or at least be a long way off. We have good news!  Against all odds, Hack/Slash has suddenly signed a director. Marcus Nispel of the Conan and Friday the 13th  remakes fame is attached to helm the film. That, friends, is a very, very good sign. (more…)

Sad News And Awesome News- Life Is A Rollercoaster, RIDE IT!

NUP_130667_0003As many of you may have heard the company behind the upcoming Hack/Slash motion comic (or is it animated movie) made the official announcement at Comic-Con of which actress will be the voice of Cassie Hack. Contrary to what we originally reported here, Allison was not that actress. Instead Heroes alumni Brea Grant will provide the voice of Cassie. During the con I happened to be close to a lot of the major players in this decision, and I felt I should say some words here about that announcement, the decision behind it, and my thoughts on it.

First off let me say here that I won’t be directly quoting anyone involved in this process. I did speak with Allison, Brea, Tim Seeley, and Matt Pizzolo (who is directing the animated feature) but I wasn’t speaking to them in my persona as reporter so their words will remain off the record. I will share some of my impressions of those conversations, but nothing more out of respect for those who were willing to speak with me candidly on this issue.

Status of the Movement And Words of Wisdom From Sax

Hey, #AllisonScag4Cassie folk!


Prompted by some tweets of late,  I thought I might write a little update for all of you who are still keeping-up-the-tweets and pushing the movement. It has been pointed out that its been a long time we’ve all been tweeting, and people are wondering if we’re doing any good.  Well here you go:


Conservatively, the #AllisonScag4Cassie movement has had the following unexpected and amazing results:


My First Maniac1. As the movement connected Allison to Tim Seeley (the creator of Hack/Slash), we facilitated Allison’s writing of the forward to the “My First Maniac” trade paperback. The effects of what we are trying to do are right there in paper and ink. Everyone should pick that up, btw, because it’s a great collection and Allison’s forward is inspired.
