I also got a chance this weekend to sit down at a roundtable with SORORITY ROW's tough-as-nails Briana Evigan, and the former dancer is not done being a bad-ass horror chick. Post-SORORITY ROW, Evigan is in pre-production for the upcoming MOTHER'S DAY remake, directed by Darren Lynn Bousman (who also directed SAW II, III, and IV).

Evigan assures horror aficionados that MOTHER'S DAY "is sick. It's really, really sick. But what I liked about it so much was that it's a concept that's way too close to home, that family means more than anything and that you'd go do absolutely anything for them. And that's the way my family is.  And, God, I just pray that nothing like this would happened, because we'd take care of each other." Evigan is not playing a member of the family, but is a "bad-ass" hostage, who is also "super hot and sexy." Evigan definitely has the attitude and the sex appeal down pat, so I can't wait to see what she turns in with MOTHER'S DAY.

When asked about her future in dance films, Evigan told us not to expect her return to the world of STEP UP flicks. Unlike Channing Tatum, who popped up in the beginning of STEP UP 2: THE STREETS to give some continuity to the story, Evigan will not be making an appearance in the just-wrapped STEP UP 3-D.

But Evigan is not done dancing onscreen, however, and expressed a keen interest (or maybe more than just an interest?) in Steve Antin's BURLESQUE, about "a small-town girl (who) ventures to Los Angeles and finds her place in a neo-burlesque club run by a former dancer." Currently, the project only has Cher and Christina Aguilera attached, but I'm guessing we might be seeing Evigan joining that list pretty soon.
