Melantha Blackthorne Joins Death RaceMeh
The very lovely and talented Melantha Blackthorne emailed me today to let me know that she will be starring in the upcoming Death Race 3000.
She tells us she will play the part of Pachenko's Navigator who is one of Statham's driving nemeses in the movie. Paul W.S. Anderson will be directing the new film. Allen will be joined by cast members Ian McShane and Tyrese Gibson with Jason Statham toplining.
Death Race sees a future America in which prison inmates are forced to brutally compete in an enclosed arena. Statham will play a prisoner who, with only weeks to go before his release, is coerced into being a driver and becomes the crowd favorite called Frankenstein.
Allen will play the warden of the prison who runs the race and ruthlessly forces Statham to enter the arena. McShane will play a coach, while Gibson is a sociopathic racer named Machine Gun Joe who seeks to espcape from prison.
