UFC Champion Rampage Jackson and the Midnight Meat Train

Midnight Meat Train



"Midnight Meat Train is a horror film based on Clive Barker's 1984 short story of the same name, which can be found in the short story collections the Books of Blood. The film will follow a NYC photographer who attempts to track down a serial killer dubbed the 'Subway Butcher' and discovers more than he bargained for under the city streets. When Leon Kaufman's latest body of work – a collection of provocative, nighttime studies of the city and its inhabitants — earns the struggling photographer interest from prominent art gallerist Susan Hoff (Brooke Shields), she propels him to get grittier and show the darker side of humanity for his upcoming debut at her downtown art space. Believing he's finally on track for success, Leon's obsessive pursuit of dark subject matter leads him into the path of a serial killer, Mahogany, the subway murderer who stalks late-night commuters — ultimately butchering them in the most gruesome ways imaginable. With his concerned girlfriend Maya (Leslie Bibb) fearing for his life, Leon's relentless fascination with Mahogany lures him further and further into the bowels of the subways and ultimately into an abyss of pure evil – inadvertently pulling Maya right along with him."

UFC champion Rampage Jackson landed a role in Clive Barker's "Midnight Meat Train" -- a horror film (not a porno) -- that is scheduled to for release on May 16, 2008. Jackson will also be featured on The Ultimate Fighter (TUF) 7 as a coach on SpikeTV's mixed martial arts reality series, which is slated to debut in April . In addition, there is some chatter that he is working on another reality series in which his parents move in and help him raise his four children.
