MTV has announced a slate of original movies. Films in production include “Turn the Beat Around,” “MADE,” and "My Super Psycho Sweet 16.”
According to the MTV press release, the latter is about “Madison Penrose, who gets everything she wants, including her wish to re-open the desolate Rollerdome for her sweet sixteen party. The site of several grisly murders a decade earlier, things become ‘psycho’ when the killer returns to crash her party.”
The film will get a theatrical run and then air on MTV in late October, 2010. It stars Juliana Guill (“Friday The 13th”), Lauren Mcknight (“House of Fear”), Chris Zylka (“Cougartown”) and Matt Angel (“Raising The Bar”).
Speaking of the entire film slate, Tony DiSanto, president of MTV programming, said in a statement, “Our mission is to redefine the creative canvas of MTV with a diversity of content in a variety of formats. Storytelling is in our DNA, and feature films for television are the next natural step of progression for us. We are thrilled to be in this game.”
