YUZNA'S ROTTWEILER PLOT
Yuzna's taking a departure from the swirling necro-chaos of Dr. Herbert West's world for a 'dog' flick that'll hopefully be anything but that. Up next for Beyond Re-Animator's Brian Yuzna? Rottweiler, a film that ventures out to the backyard and digs up that dead 'killer dog' sub-genre that I thought was officially put down with New Line's Man's Best Friend.
Rottweiler is currently in pre-production under Filmax Intl.'s genre banner Fantastic Factory. Like Beyond and Stuart Gordon's Dagon (both from Fantastic Factory), Lions Gate has already secured distribution in the US. There's no cast locked in yet (well, it hasn't been announced), but one heck of a mysterious plot breakdown has appeared over at Filmax's official site thats had to cut-and-paste here. The following sounds like this labyrinthine emotional journey, I mean, it's a killer dog movie!
'It is a duel. A man escaping from his past, pursued by the Beast that will haunt him and destroy those around him until he finally honors a lovers' vow and confronts his destiny.
Imagine an adventurous young couple, teenagers escaping the world of consumerism and comfortable conformity by playing the game of 'infiltration', the practice of entering into dangerous situations in which you don't belong. They do it just for the rush, the adrenaline rush, the pure passion for life, for love, as only the young can love. A love more important than life itself.
But infiltrating a boatload of immigrants who are washed up on a dangerous shore, a land ruled by the merciless iron fist of Colonel Kufard, takes the lovers beyond the dangers of the 'game' and into a nightmare realm of violence and damnation. A new game with new rules played to the death.
A desperate fugitive, running from the past, pursued by ROTT, the beast that stops at nothing to carry out the order to kill. A rottweiler left for dead that comes back ever stronger, with fangs and jaws of steel and a single-minded bloodlust. Reinforced with modern technology and possessed of an ancient evil that will not die until it has devoured the heart and possessed the soul of its prey.
A chase across a landscape of terror where there is no friend, no refuge, no respite from relentless violence and cruelty,... there is only the hunter and the hunted.'
