Crampton and Hues pictured on the set of Puppet Master reboot

Puppet Master: The Littlest Reich Barbara Crampton

In the original PUPPET MASTER, genre icon Barbara Crampton only made a brief cameo as a woman visiting a fortune teller. It sounds like she'll have a much more substantial role in the upcoming PUPPET MASTER reboot, Sonny Laguna and Tommy Wiklund's PUPPET MASTER: THE LITTLEST REICH, which was written by BONE TOMAHAWK's S. Craig Zahler.

Crampton's role in the new film is a character who is present for so much bloodshed that the actress even tweeted from the set last year that her "entire body" was bloody. That character is Carol Doreski, who Crampton described (to Scream) as 

a tour guide and an ex-police officer. I was part of the police crew that brought Andre Toulon down many years ago and then thirty years later, something is happening. There’s a convention and some puppets are going to be sold at this convention so a lot of people that bought puppets from Andre Toulon many years ago have come back to this first ever convention so all these people and all these puppets are brought together for the first time in a very long time and something happens. Obviously, I can’t say what happens but it’s very slyly written ..."

Carol Doreski is featured in a newly released image from the film that was shared on Twitter by Cinestate, one of the companies behind the reboot.

Crampton's THE LITTLEST REICH co-stars include Thomas Lennon, Michael Paré, Jenny Pellicer, Nelson Franklin, Alex Beh, Tina Parker, Skeeta Jenkins, and Charlyne Yi, with Udo Kier as the puppet master Toulon.

The Cinestate Twitter page has also revealed that there's another notable cast member I was previously unaware of - Matthias Hues, who played the CD-blasting evil alien in the sci-fi action classic I COME IN PEACE (a.k.a. DARK ANGEL), is in PUPPET MASTER: THE LITTLEST REICH as a character named Strommelson. I didn't think I could get any more excited for this movie than I already am, but the addition of Hues has increased the excitement.

The film is set to have its world premiere at the Overlook Film Festival in New Orleans later this month.
