Krista has landed a new film role just over a month after finishing the filming of her scenes in the last one. 'Shannon's Rainbow' is currently filming in the Ohio Valley General Hospital. It is low-budget film about a girl and a horse named Rainbow that becomes a racehorse. The cast includes Michael Madsen, Claire Forlani, Charles Durning, Stephen Colletti, Eric Roberts, Krista Allen, Jason Gedrick, George Lopez, Steve Guttenberg and Scott Reeves. More information when available.
Since the last news update on this site, 'All Along' (Krista plays Sara, the therapist) started screening in late March (it was at the DV & HD Film Festival, for example, in LA and some of the stars attended a Q&A session to promote it).
Another movie mentioned in the last news update - 'Strange Wilderness' - was released on DVD just recently. And shooting for 'Final Destination 4' - which started in late February - is just starting to wrap (Krista finished shooting her scenes recently). In fact, according www.al.com today, "main-unit principal photography on 'Final Destination 4 was completed Friday" and a a second-unit production team was at Mobile International Speedway in Irvington over the weekend to "shoot a pivotal racing accident scene that propels the unnerving plot of "Final Destination 4".
A couple of weeks ago, shocktillyoudrop.com published their account of a set visit. The writer mentioned that the movie's location was the least expensive to film in at the moment (not surprising after Katrina's devastation there) and they are shooting in High Definition (not an inexpensive task). FD4 will be the first live-action 3D horror film to be shot in High Definition, in fact.
Without trying to spoil the movie too much, for those that have not read the shocktillyoudrop.com article, two key points to look for in the movie are the movie theater explosion and obviously the car crash at the racetrack (apart from a few hundred locals that were extras, the rest of the spectators are CGI folk). According to shocktillyoudrop.com, part of the trailer they saw "ended with a shot of a bloodied-up Krista Allen having a huge car engine dropped on her with the cute catchphrase, something like "Coming at You in 2009."
After a news item was published on Variety.com recently, more than a dozen major movie sites have reported over the weekend that Krista has been cast in New Line Cinema's Final Destination 4. Many of these sites have mentioned that Eric Bress wrote the screenplay and that David Richard Ellis will direct the movie. It will be shot in 3D and filming starts this month in New Orleans.
The cast includes Shantel VanSanten, Hayley Webb, Bobby Campo, Nick Zano and Andy Fiscella. The storyline revolves around a premonition of a racecar crash that actually saves the lives of a few people, until death comes stalking them. Critics are already panning this script and the cast. With a $43 million budget to recover, it is expected that the movie will be out well before Christmas.
A movie that Krista filmed a year ago, called Strange Wilderness opened in more than 1200 movie cinemas at the beginning of February. Its box office takings in the opening weekend were just over $3 million.
In January, an old film starring Krista, called Meet Market was released on DVD. You can read more about the movie on this page.
