"300" star Rodrigo Santoro will play Susan Cabot's husband in the biopic about the B-movie star "Black Oasis."
Still hot from his role in epic saga "300", Brazilian actor Rodrigo Santoro has signed on to star opposite Rose McGowan in "Black Oasis", which will depict the life story of tragic B-movie staple Susan Cabot, appearing as her husband.
Based on a Premiere magazine article written by John H. Richardson, the picture is said to chronicle Cabot's rise on the B-circuit, in which she was a favorite of director Roger Corman, up to her death at the hands of son Timothy, who bludgeoned her with a weightlifting bar when she was fifty-nine years old.
Australian filmmaker Stephan Elliot has already come onboard to direct from a script he himself wrote with Hilary Shor and Tony Smith both producing through their Hit & Run Productions. Serving as executive producers are Wouter Barendrecht and Michael J. Werner, who assumed the same duty last year for "Shortbus" and "The Night Listener."
