LUCKY MCKEE SEES RED
Variety reports that Lucky McKee, the writer/director of MAY who?s currently in post production on United Artists? THE WOODS, will next direct RED for management/production company Circle of Confusion, with UA financing and releasing. The project is based on Jack Ketchum?s novel about a man who sets out on a murderous revenge spree against the thugs who killed his pet dog; Stephen Susco, who wrote THE GRUDGE and is working on THRESHOLD, an English-language remake of the Quebecois horror hit SUR LE SEUIL (EVIL WORDS), for Dimension, is adapting Ketchum?s novel. Jason Lust, who will produce the movie with Circle partners David Engel, Lawrence Mattis and David Alpert, told the trade that RED will be in the tough, old-fashioned tradition of STRAW DOGS?no pun apparently intended.
