Interview with DeeDee Bigelow

DeeDee Bigelow is appearing in two new upcoming films “Alien Armageddon” and “Showgirls 2: Penny’s from Heaven”.  Media Mikes had a chance to chat with DeeDee about her films and also her plans to direct.

Mike Gencarelli: Everyone is talking about “Alien Armageddon”, what can you tell us about the film and working on it?
DeeDee Bigelow: The amazing fact about “Alien Armageddon” is that director Neil Johnson took the film from concept to post in five months for $27,000. I’m not sure many can say they have accomplished this in this industry. Pretty amazing to me and working on it was great! I showed up, having no clue what I was going to do and was told I would be shooting aliens. I was really thrilled…until the director said…”and you blow up”. LOL, it was great!

MG: What can you tell us about “Showgirls 2: Penny’s from Heaven” and do you feel that the sequel has the edge of the first film?
DDB: I cannot say much about “Showgirls 2”. Rena Riffel (who played Penny in “Showgirls”) wrote and directed this sequel. It also has Glenn Plummer in it from the original. Guess you will have to watch it in 2012 and see…

MG: We interviewed Mayim Bialik and Thomas Ian Nicholas from “The Chicago 8”, tell us about your experience?
DDB: Ah, “The Chicago 8”. I played a juror in this film and it was an incredible experience. This film has a talented cast and it was an honor to work with them. It is such a sad real-life story and the cast definitely brought this to life. I felt like I was there in Chicago as this was happening. Although I have not seen the final movie yet, I’ve heard it is pretty amazing!

MG: You are writer/producer on the film “The Deceit”, what can you tell us about that project?
DDB: Unfortunately my movie “The Deceit” has been put on the back burner for the moment. I’m writing/ producing a short film (with my co-producer Robert Shannon) about a true story in ancient Rome. We plan to shoot this later this year, and it has taken precedence over “The Deceit”. We are truly excited to shoot this short film though, then I’ll come back to “The Deceit”!

MG: Tell us about how you got involved with portraying Diana Diablo in “Ginger Stein” comic?
DDB: Well…I saw Dennis Willman’s artwork, and hired him to do my movie poster. We became friends, and when the comic book came up, of course I said I would love to be “Diana Diablo” in Ginger Stein! He is developing 2 more comics, and I will be in both of them as well!

MG: I think “Dahmer vs Gacy 2: In Space” will make a fun movie, any idea if this will be made?
DDB: Yes! Writer/director Ford Austin will definitely make this sequel, and I’m honored to be a part of it!!!

DeeDee Bigelow Stars in Comic “Ginger Stein: Rise of the Undead”

Actress and Producer DEEDEE BIGELOW is honored to be a part of “Ginger Stein: Rise of the Undead,”
the new Horror Sci-Fi Comic Book by artist Dennis Willman, Jeff Hughes of Comic Book Divas and Iron
Dead Studios. “Ginger Stein” is the story of an ordinary woman called upon to become extraordinary as the
world falls victim to a zombie apocalypse. The concept of “Ginger Stein” is really a simple love letter to
everything that makes the horror and sci-fi genres great, in particular the 1980’s. The story is largely inspired
in spirit by Romero’s “Dead” movies, “The Evil Dead” Trilogy and the “Phantasm” series of films.
Miss Bigelow will portray “Diana Diablo”, a sly and cunning woman that does not hesitate to turn on her enemies…and friends. She is definitely a character not to be under-estimated! Attached is the promo photo
of DeeDee as “Diana Diablo”, along with a behind-the-scenes photo!
A scipt for the feature film is also currently in developement.
