The man behind the mask of director Rob Zombie's Halloween ghoul Michael Meyers has formed his own horror film production company.
Tyler Mane has launched Mane Entertainment, LLC and hopes to start shooting his first project, the horror thriller Penance Lane, in 2010.
The actor, who has also appeared in Troy and X-Men, insists his films will be super-low budget.
He tells WENN, "Right now you have to go smaller to get bigger. I think we, as filmmakers, need to be more responsible in this rough economic period, and mitigate the financial risk of making films.
"Indie films are taking a beating. I firmly believe that some of the best, most creative films are done on a smaller budget. If you're absolutely committed to getting a high quality project, it forces you to think outside the box and make the best use of your resources."
