L-R Abigail Breslin, Thomas Jane, Malin Akerman (via Deadline)

Abigail Breslin, Thomas Jane, and Malin Akerman are teaming up to fight vampires in a new horror comedy, Slayers.

The trio join previously announced cast members Kara Hayward, Lydia Hearst, and Jack Donnelly.

Slayers (fka With Teeth) follows a group of internet influencers who are drawn to a reclusive, seductive billionaire’s mansion (Akerman). But that mansion is actually the lair of an evil vampire.

Breslin plays the lead Jules, a smart-mouthed fitness guru. She teams up with an old school vampire hunter (Jane) and a famous online gamer (Hayward) to take out the vampires.

It’s definitely an interesting team setup – and one with plenty of comedy potential. Breslin herself is no stranger to a monster-hunting horror-comedy. She’s already faced down the undead in fan favorite Zombieland.

While Breslin may be happy to keep hunting monsters, Ackerman expressed her excitement to join the undead in Slayers.

“I’m so excited to get back on set and can’t think of a better group to share the screen with during this unique time! When this script came to me, I immediately knew I wanted to be a part of it and now I get to play this fun, vampire villain – a first for me!” said Ackerman.

K. Asher Levin directs and produces Slayers. In addition to acting, Jane serves as an executive producer with Courtney Lauren Penn via their production company Renegade Entertainment. Akerman and Hearst will also be exec producers. Lead Breslin produces as well.

So, are you looking forward to Slayers? I know I love a good horror-comedy.
