Probably best remembered as Faith the rogue Slayer and sultry kicker of many butts from the Buffy the Vampire Slayer television series (though Tru Calling was pretty good too), Eliza Dushku is set to star in Mamba alongside Mike Vogel of Poseidon and Texas Chainsaw Massacre (2003) fame. Joining them will be German actress Naike Rivelli and Spanish thespians Gary Piquer , Alex O'Dogherty, and Martxelo Rubio. The film will shoot for eight weeks in Northern Spain and will be helmed by first-time Spanish director Alvaro de Arminan, with a screenplay written by Roderick and Bruce Taylor (scripters of the upcoming Jodie Foster vehicle The Brave One) and Antonio Cuadri (writer and director of The Heart of The Earth). Juan Carlos Orihuela, Billy Dietrich, and Cuadri will produce.

Mamba is a teen thriller about a group of young surfers who discover an old satanic board game called Mamba, though I'm already tempted to call it Parcheesi of the Damned. Players who die in the game also die in real life.The story is said to be a cross between I Know What You Did Last Summer and Final Destination, though it sounds like there's a smattering of Jumanji and the dashiest dash of Stay Alive in there as well.
