Also making news is some inspired casting. Those of us who grew up in the 70’s might recognize the name Lawrence Hilton-Jacobs. Ring a bell? How about Freddy “Boom Boom” Washington, yeah there you go. Lawrence graced the small screen each and every week alongside John Travolta in the highly successful ‘Welcome Back Kotter’. In 31 he’ll portraLay “Panda Thomas the manager of a traveling roadshow known as “The Venus Lux Happy Time Fun Show”. Unfortunately the fun stops as soon as he enters Murder World.”
The story synopsis breaks down as follows and the film “is the story of five random people kidnapped on the five days leading up to Halloween and held hostage in a place called Murder World. While trapped inside this man-made Hell they must fight to survive playing the most violent game known to man… a game called 31.”
