Longtime stunts stalwart Zoe Bell came into her own as an actress in “Death Proof,” Quentin Tarantino’s half of 2007’s retro-tastic “Grindhouse” double-feature, but her geek cred looks to keep piling up with a starring role in “Angel of Death,” the upcoming, live-action online series created by comics scribe Ed Brubaker (”Sleeper“).
The first trailer for the series debuted this week on Sony Pictures’ online channel Crackle.com, and along with Bell, it features many faces familiar to genre fans — including Doug Jones (”Hellboy I/II“), Lucy Lawless (”Xena”) and Ted Raimi (”Spider-Man“).
In the series, which will be composed of 8-10 episodes released over 10 weeks, Bell plays a mafia assassin who suffers a catastrophic head wound and subsequently decides to kill the people who once ordered her to kill others. We first spoke to Brubaker back in August about the series, and he shared some details about what viewers can expect when the first episode of “Angel of Death” debuts in 2009.

Been a while since I mentioned this film on the site so here is the new trailer for the movie, Bitch Slap. It may well be a big pile of rubbish but it does look like a lot of fun in a Faster Pussycat! Kill! Kill! Russ Meyer kind of vibe. As well as the three female leads mentioned below it also stars the mighty Kevin Sorbo and Lucy Lawless along with their respective partners from the old Hercules and Xena TV shows (they can all be seen here). I posted a load of character posters a while back if you care to take a look at them. Zoe Bell’s character poster of Rawhide came out a bit later and can be seen here. It’s directed by Rick Jacobson.
At its core, ‘Bitch Slap’ follows three bad girls (a down-and-out stripper, a drug-running killer and a corporate powerbroker) as they arrive at a remote desert hideaway to extort and steal $200 Million in diamonds from a ruthless underworld kingpin. Things quickly spin out of control as allegiances change, truths are revealed, other criminals arrive for the score, the fate of the world hangs in the balance and they are forced to confront a villain much worse than they ever expected… themselves. It’s the ultimate morality tale as, one by one, they realize the whole she-bang was a set-up and one of them may not even be human…”
John Campea of The Movie Blog interviewed the three female leads America Olivo (Camero), Julia Voth (Trixie) and Erin Cummings (Hel). The second part of the interview mentions Zoe Bell and an 8 minute fight scene between two of the leads. Here is the interview (it’s in two parts)
How do you like them apples? Will it be up for an Oscar…no, but will you be going to see it or rent it if it goes direct to DVD? What do you think will happen in the plot? There is mention somebody may not be human in it – so what do you think they will be?
