JOE HARRIS & CORN SEQUEL
?Darkness Falls? scribe Joe Harris told MovieHole that there?s little movement on his ?Children of the Corn? sequel, but that he?s got some great ideas for it. ?I?ve written the next installment of The Children of the Corn franchise for Dimension, I?ve also been working on a slew of new horror and comic book-based movie projects that will cause a lot of my friends, fans and even enemies to raise an eyebrow?. So what?s the idea for ?Corn? 8? ?Make it scary again. The original concept and story in Stephen King?s novella (which really did come across in the first film) is creepy as hell: children killing adults, for the glory of God (such as it is). I think kids are scary. They shouldn?t be but they are, to adults. I want to get back to that exhilarating fear of being chased through the cornfields by scythe-wielding children. I want to bring out these children?s inner ?Lord of the Flies? and get away from the neo-Amish vibe they give off. My children hunt in packs and pile on once they bring down their prey. They don?t stop stabbing, ripping and tearing until you?re dead. Then they feed you to the Corn God. This stuff should make you go, ?Holy fucking shit!? It will, if I have my way.?
Harris also touched upon a ?Darkness Falls? sequel. ?Haven?t heard anything in a while. It?s got to focus on the monster though, if they do it. All good sequels focus on the bad guy.?
Meantime, ?Gareth? from sknr.net talked to ?Cold Mountain? scribe Charlie Hunnan about what he?s got next on the cards. ?I am doing a film on Soccer Hooligans and I play the leader of the West Ham and I am fascinated by what I learned in research. It is amazing how organized it is and how fights can be arranged before the matches as well as a code of conduct. There is some good comedy in it as well. Elijah Wood, Tommy Flannigan are in it as well. I will do Robert Towne?s new film after that as well with Colin Farrell and Selma Hayek?.
