JEKYLL FOR THE 21ST CENTURY
Fanboy Planet has been following closely the development process of a new 'modestly budgeted' horror film called JEKYLL. The movie is being made by Creative Light Entertainment, the same company that produced Mark Hamill's new film COMIC BOOK: THE MOVIE (hitting DVD next week). JEKYLL is a modern day update to the classic Robert Louis Stevenson tome THE STRANGE CASE OF DR. JEKYLL AND MR. HYDE, which such futuristic concepts as having Hyde living inside a virtual reality. The picture's first day of filming is next Monday and according to these reports a number of genre-friendly actors have signed for key roles in the production.
Fanboy Planet has five articles featuring interviews with the film's producers and designers talking about the challenges in bringing JEKYLL to life. You can get the goods by visiting Fanboy Planet's JEKYLL section. There's also some pre-production artwork showing designs of the main character and something that can best be described as one killer bunny.
The cast list for JEKYLL should be released shortly.
