At the Fango conference, some lucky bastard managed to pin down Jeffrey Combs for a few minutes after his panel with Bill Malone and discover that he is just a little bit closer to signing on to 'Beyond Re-Animator'.
He's says he'll probably be on a plane by next week for Barcelona, where the movie will be shot under the eye of 'Bride of Re-Animator' director Brian Yuzna. He also managed to let a bit of the storyline slip...
'The premise of [Beyond Re-Animator] is that ... Dan Cain turns state's evidence, and that Herbert West has been in prison this whole time,' Combs said. 'But on the night that he's been taken by the police at the end of the last movie, there was a young boy in a campout in his backyard, and, without giving too much away, ... I surreptitiously dropped some of my ... reanimating fluid on the ground before I'm put into the police car. ... You jump cut, and [the boy] is now grown and has gone to medical school and has pulled some strings to be assigned to be the physician at said prison, so that he can connect up with the infamous Dr. West and get to the bottom of exactly what this is.'
So very cool. You know you're going to hear about it right away as soon as it's official, and if I have my druthers, you'll hear about it from us first.
