Pam Grier will join Danny Trejo, Michael Madsen and Sasha Grey in the revenge action flick Skinny Dip , currenly being sold to international markets at Cannes.
The film will be shot starting next month in Colombia, for the independent production company The Zoo. According to the production company, Skinny Dip is about “a girl who takes an innocent dare, ends up terribly victimized and then seeks shotgun-wielding revenge while wearing a stolen police uniform”
Evidently, according to the director Frankie Latina, Grier was a real inspiration for him: “I grew up on and have always loved the films of the 70’s and 80’s featuring such on-screen idols as Pam Grier, Laura Gemser (the Indonesian actress who starred in several “Black Emmanuelle” soft core porn films back in the 70’s – Ah yes I remember her well…) and Grace Jones. They contain, in my opinion, some the most powerful female performances in cinema history.“
He further added: “Combining the wild, exploitative sensibility of grind-house films with strong female characters drawn from the present – these are the kinds of films I make and want to see.”
SO DO I!
