A commenter tipped us off to a new entry on Alexis Bledel’s IMDB page! She’s rumored to be in the sequel to horror and cult classic Sleepaway Camp. This would be a huge departure for Alexis, who up to now has only been in romantic comedies (except for her turn in Sin City). Sleepaway Camp is the franchise of director and writer Robert Hiltzik. The original was released in 1983, and is quite simply, about teens getting killed at a sleep away camp. There’s a very detailed Wikipedia page on the film if you are interested in reading more about it. To be honest, I doubt that Alexis is actually involved, but we’ll continue to keep our ears tuned for any more news on this film. It looks like it’s been in production since 2007, when a press release was posted on the Sleep Away Camp films website.
Much more likely is Alexis’s casting as “Janet Treadway” in a The Letters, a film based on a short story by Ellen Gilchrist. Right now, the only information on the movie is being listed in IMDBPro, as the film is still “in production.” So, it could be quite a while before this project ends up on the big screen.
