Syfy breathes lava life into Lavalantula
by Doc on Sep.22, 2014, under Television
What happens when you take three of Police Academy‘s most memorable stars, and pit them against giant lava-breathing spiders? We don’t know yet, but we’re going to find out.
Giant lava breathing tarantulas – Lavalantulas – erupt out of ancient volcanos in the Santa Monica Mountains, raining death and destruction upon Los Angeles, in the new Syfy Original Movie Lavalantula, premiering in Summer 2015.
With the City of Angels on the verge of incineration, only a washed up ‘90s action hero actor, played by Steve Guttenberg (Police Academy, Diner) – joined by Police Academy alumni Leslie Easterbrook (Police Academy) and Michael Winslow (Police Academy: The Series) — stand in the way of this monstrous swarm of bloodthirsty creatures who burn their victims alive.
Currently in production in Los Angeles, Lavalantula also co-stars Nia Peeples (The Young and the Restless) and Ralph Garman (KROQ/LA DJ).
Lavalantula will be directed by Mike Mendez, who won a Saturn Award for helming Big Ass Spiders.

It may have been expected, but now it is a fact: Bryan Singer will return to the franchise for a fourth time, directing X-Men: Apocalypse.
Singer helped launch the franchise by directing both X-Men and X-Men: X2, and then returned to merge the original movies with the retro X-Men: First Class in the form of X-Men: Days of Future Past this year.
Plot details are still a mystery, but the script is being written by Simon Kinberg, who wrote X-Men: The Last Stand and X-Men: Days of Future Past, from a story by Singer, Kinberg, Michael Dougherty and Dan Harris. It is expected to be released May 27, 2016.
