From the Philly Daily News;

‘Enough talk about “Limitless,” the Bradley Cooper movie. The horror film “Crossbearer” is shooting in the area for another week. The film, about a religious fanatic who murders strippers and drug dealers with a hammer in an attempt to cleanse the earth, is written and directed by Adam Ahlbrandt, whose previous films include “Sight,” “The Burnt House,” and “The Cemetery.” “Jackass/Viva La Bam” cameraman Joe Frantz is also in the film, produced by Doug Sakmann and Natalie Jean. Several bloody stripper scenes were just shot at Daydreams (5200 Unruh) in the Northeast.

Speaking of Sakmann, his company, Backseat Conceptions, is working on a reality show pilot starring Lloyd Kaufman, the head of Troma Films, where Sakmann was head of production from 1999 to 2002.

Kaufman’s studio is behind classics such as “The Toxic Avenger” and “Surf Nazis Must Die.” Sakmann and Nick Esposito are producing the pilot, which Evan Mezaros is directing. The guys met while working for Troma. The premise is that Kaufman, who’s been making films for 37 years, will visit movie sets and help filmmakers with their craft, as Sakmann describes, “similar to what Gordon Ramsay does with restaurants on ‘Kitchen Nightmares.’ ”
