Just got the “Nuke’em High” press release and saw some weird news sprinkled in there…
Greetings from Tromaville! Troma Entertainment is proud to announce that principal photography has wrapped on Return to Class of Nuke ‘Em High, directed by Lloyd Kaufman.
Produced in association with STARZ Media, Return to Class of Nuke ‘Em High is a satirical sci-fi comedy concerning idealistic students, overcoming bullying, and love triumphing over prejudice. The themes are in the same vein as other classics such as The Breakfast Club, Ferris Bueller’s Day Off and Carrie, seen through the unique vision of the Troma Team. Welcome to Tromaville High School where, unfortunately, the glee club has mutated into hideous Cretins. Chrissy and Lauren, two innocent lovers/bloggers must fight not only mutants and monsters, but also the evil Tromorganic Foodstuffs Conglomerate. Will they save Tromaville High School and the world?
That bit about STARZ is pretty interesting. How did this relationship come about? Does this have anything to do with the trailer being pulled (sort of) from Youtube the other day? What is the nature of this relationship?
Is STARZ going to swallow Troma or are the two courting to put more Troma programming back on cable?
Obviously, all anyone can do is guess, but *something* is going on between these two. A conglomerate cable company doesn’t just up and help Troma make a movie. And the wording of the press release reads much more like a softcore pitch from STARZ than anything Troma has put out before. Especially when compared to the trailer that peeked out yesterday. If you didn’t catch it, there are a ton of boobs, some decent gore, a flaccid pierced dick wopping an innocent bystander in the face, and other Troma signatures.
And it’s compared to “The Breakfast Club”.
