So far, it looks like Corey Taylor has made a point of broaching every single entertainment art form. The Slipknot and Stone Sour frontman has made music (obviously), written books, and acted in movies (he appeared as a villain in Shawn Crahan’s Officer Downe). Now, it looks like the singer will return to the big screen once more, this time alongside his wife Alicia Dove.
According to IMDB, Taylor will appear in the new horror film Rucker (The Trucker), playing a character named ‘Taco Tuesday.’ Dove, meanwhile, will perform as ‘Darlene #49,’ with several other Darlene’s also appearing in the movie.
“It was as easy as Aaron [Drane, the film’s producer] reaching out to me,” Taylor said in an interview with Olympic College about how he became a part of the movie. “He and I worked together on Fear Clinic, and apparently I left a lasting impression. He sent me Rucker and we were able to make the time work, and it was boom, boom, boom — the rest is history.”
“He’s a rock star,” Drane said of having Taylor involved in the picture. “I mean that in every sense of the word. He is one of the coolest guys I know, and he’s somebody who has to function at a very high level, yet really goes far out of his way to help other people achieve their art.”
According to Drane, Rucker won’t be a typical slasher movie: “When you watch a horror film, when you participate in the content and the characters, you feel a sense of shared vulnerability. What we tried to do with this film was tap into the human experience and the underlying fears associated with real-life issues. It’s real-life horror.”
Keep your eyes peeled for Rucker (The Trucker) in theaters or VOD in the near future. Check out the poster below:
