Wait? No "Casinosaurus"? No "Neonocalypse"?

Horror B-cheese king Roger Corman is wrapping up a movie about Las Vegas -- and no, it doesn't involve cyborg vampires throwing lightning bolts from their keening skysharks. It's called "Stealing Las Vegas" and, uh, the premise sounds kinda clever. From Fearnet:

What else is next for you? A picture called Stealing Las Vegas, which I'm doing with the students at the University of Nevada at Las Vegas. When you think of robbing a casino in Las Vegas, you think of Ocean's Eleven and slick crooks. This is different. These are employees. You see, Vegas is having tough times right now, as you may have read. And these employees are going to be laid off; and they decide to rob their own casino, because they know how the casino runs better than anybody else. So the electrician blows a fuse at the same time that the plumber stops up the toilet at the same time the drinks girl spills a drink in the lap of the head of security at the same time that the parking attendant parks a car in a position blocking the exit to the hotel and throws away the key, while a couple of maintenance men break into the vault and steal the money.
