'Candyman' to Direct   

January 13, 2009 Tony Todd (Candyman, Final Destination, Platoon, The Rock) has announced his plans to film his new movie, "Eerrie, Pa." in and around the city of Erie, Pa., in late Spring of 2009.

Comedian Lewis Black and Todd will star in the independently produced film which tells the story of two small time bookies in over the heads.

Todd is talking to other well known actors for roles in the upcoming film and will be looking for local cast and crew members (in the Erie area) as production draws closer.

Greg Ropp, President of the Eerie Horror Film Festival, is acting as the associate producer for the movie, which marks Todd's directorial debut.
