‘Paradise City’ star Lorenzo Antonucci has gone from music with the thrash metal band Sworn Enemy to filmmaking and now to executive producing a comic book. The ‘American Satan’ actor has partnered with Scout Comics to bring an action-horror series ‘Night of the Cadillacs.’
According to a press release, the comic book is “a captivating new horror comic executive produced by Lorenzo Antonucci, star & executive producer of the trending hit series Paradise City (Amazon Prime) in collaboration with Sean E. Demott, Jake Hearns and Terrance Zdunich. Comic book art by Kirk Manley and Rob Prior.” It adds that the story is “a compelling story inspired by L.A.’s Fairfax District’s street culture and cult films The Lost Boys and The Warriors. Supernatural gangs come to Earth on a mission to retrieve live-restoring blood from humans during a rare blood moon.”
Demott told the Hollywood Reporter that the writers “met in this shady, shady bar in the Valley. I said ‘We need to have Warriors, but it’s supernatural with a love story.'”
Hearns said that they “made this agreement early on. No capes, no tights.”
Antonucci added, “Ripped jeans and ripped shorts and tattoos and fangs.”
The official synopsis explains that “‘Night of the Cadillacs’ is a high-octane, genre-bending mix of horror, hard action, forbidden love and street culture. Rival supernatural gangs come to earth on an overnight raiding mission to retrieve life-restoring blood from humans. The gangs fight among themselves for prized human captives and the survival of their clan. While the battle rages, a defiant and charismatic gangbanger (our hero Stiv) breaks free from his crew to go on the run with a rebellious, 18-year-old human girl (our other hero Hope) to protect her from his predatory family.”
‘Night of the Cadillacs’ will be released by Scout Comics & Entertainment Holdings Inc. with distribution by Simon & Schuster and Lunar in September 2021.
