NEW YORK – November 3, 2011 – Look out Betty, Cloris and Colin – there’s a new Bickerman in town! Horror icon Robert Englund (Freddy Krueger/Nightmare on Elm Street) will star in the upcoming Syfy Saturday Original Movie Lake Placid: The Final Chapter, it was announced today by Thomas Vitale, Executive Vice President, Programming and Original Movies, Syfy.
Following Betty White, Cloris Leachman, and Colin Ferguson — who were all part of the Bickerman clan in previous Lake Placid movies — Englund will play Jim Bickerman, a poacher looking to score a big break on hides and eggs from these rare crocs. In Lake Placid: The Final Chapter, which will co-star Elisabeth Rohm (Law and Order) and Yancy Butler (Kick-Ass), attempts to contain the giant crocs of Black Lake fail, and now it’s up to the new Sheriff (Rohm) to stop the latest rampage.
The movie is currently in production in Bulgaria and is scheduled to premiere on Syfy in 2012.
A production of UFO (Jeffrey Beach and Phillip Roth, producers), Lake Placid: Final Chapter will be directed by Don Michael Paul.
