Rusty Kelley: Star of Tomorrow!

Rusty Kelley: Star of Tomorrow!

I’ll say it forever: one of the best things that can happen at SXSW is when filmmakers band together upon meeting at the fest, and collaborate. And, there’s a bunch of that going on every year. Joe Swanberg’s Hannah Takes the Stairs is a terrific example. But, filmmaker Bryan Poyser posts on his blog that the star of three PoyBoy projects, Rusty Kelley, has now been cast in Ti West’s third feature which also happens to be Cabin Fever 2. What makes this even more kismet, is the fact that Rusty co-stars (with Joe Swanberg, no less) in Bryan’s new short film, Grammy’s, which screens in front of Trigger Man, Ti’s second (newest) feature film. Make sense? This coincidence is kinda nuts, but makes the Grammy’s/Trigger Man screening even more meaningful. It gets even weirder: Cabin Fever 2 is produced by Lauren Moews who will be at SXSW with another film, Borderland. And, she’ll join original Cabin Fever director Eli Roth on Sunday’s horror panel. Okay, I’m outta breath…
