Anaconda 3 and 4 shooting

You’ll never guess who is playing the hero?


Sony have commissioned a further two sequels to Luis Llosa’s “Anaconda” – sans the original’s all-star cast. You’ll never guess who’ll be doing battle with the giant snake this time?

None other than ‘The Hoff’!

Yep, David Hasselhoff’s on River-Watch for the Don E. FauntLeRoy (“Urban Justice”; cinematographer on “Jeepers Creepers 2″) directed sequels – both filming back to back. He’s joined by Crystal Allen (“Maid in Manhattan”), John Rhys Davies (“Lord of the Rings”) and Zoltan Butuc (“Funny Money”).

Ol’ fluffy chest plays a mercenary-for-hire who accepts a mission from a billionaire to capture a dangerous snake that could possibly help cure a terminal illness. I assume the rest of the bunch play, well, food?

The films – the first being titled “Anaconda 3 : The Offspring” – will be shot in – of course – Romania. It’s planned that they’ll premiere on the Sci Fi Channel before hitting DVD.

Ah, who says The Hoff’s over?
