Danielle Harris, a firm horror fan favourite is set to direct, what is being described as “an all female slasher” in the oddly titled SEQUEL.
Not much is known of the plot as of yet, but we are told that legendary film maker Joe Dante is involved with his production company Renfield Productions and the film is described as a “dark comic tale”
British writer James Moran whose deft writing skills have seen him work on Doctor Who and Touchwood has written the script and we have some quotes from both the producer Mark Alan and Harris herself.
First up, Alan who said:
“Our team knew immediately Moran was rewriting the rules. It’s like he combined Charlie’s Angels and Scream together to get this entirely fresh subgenre of female action slasher. It’s hilarious and adrenalizing – a dragon only Danielle can tame”
While Harris, who surely knows this genre better than anyone was also happy to be involved in such a project.
“I knew as soon as I finished reading the first act that Sequel was the perfect fit for me. I could finally bring all of my experiences in the horror genre behind the camera and into these exceptionally written final girl characters. I’ve been on the hunt for a story that had strong female leads and was intelligent and darkly comedic. I just didn’t want to do anything paranormal since we have enough real-life evil without having to go make shit up. If I’m going to spend the next two years of my life on a film, it has to be fun – and this story has it all. With Joe Dante and Mark Alan by my side, we’re gonna kill it.”
Sounds intriguing and we give you more news on SEQUEL as we get it!
