Venghaus tracks beast

McDonough to topline Bigfoot tale

David Venghaus, who served as an assistant director on Steven Spielberg’s “Catch Me If You Can,” “Minority Report” and “A.I. Artificial Intelligence,” will direct “They Call Him Sasquatch” from a script he penned.

Mike Dieveney and Tom Bresnahan will produce the low-budget feature, which heads into production in October in Big Bear, Calif.

“Sasquatch” follows the exploits of a motley group of Bigfoot enthusiasts in the mountains of Northern California, where a recent sighting of the creature has occurred. A cash reward is offered for the capture of the beast, which spurs everyone to begin scheming to win the money.

Neal McDonough (“Minority Report”), who was recently named one of Variety‘s 10 Actors to Watch, is set to star, along with Bresnahan, Garry Marshall, Warren Berlinger, Chuck McCann and Vene Arcoraci.

Bresnahan has produced pics including “Headless Body in Topless Bar,” “Absolute Force” and “Total Force.”
