The sequel continues the story of a group of backpackers lured to a remote Slovakian village, where businessmen pay to kill them for pleasure. Pic is currently shooting in Prague.
Eli Roth, who wrote and helmed the original, penned the sequel and directs.
Mike Fleiss and Chris Briggs produce along with Roth. Exec producers are Boaz Yakin, Scott Spiegel and Quentin Tarantino.
Bart has also been cast as a U.S. attorney in Universal’s Ridley Scott-directed “American Gangster,” which stars Russell Crowe and Denzel Washington.
Bart most recently had an arc on ABC’s “Desperate Housewives” and starred in the feature version of “The Producers.”
