I KNOW TEAM'S BACKWATER
Variety reports that the I KNOW WHAT YOU DID LAST SUMMER team of director Jim Gillespie and scripter Kevin Williamson have reteamed for the Dimension horror film BACKWATER. Williamson is also producing (with Jennifer Breslow) this project, which, as we reported way back here, is based on a video game concept by Flint Dille and John Zuur Platten about a serial killer called Mr. Jangle who haunts the Louisiana swamps. The game never came to fruition, but the film is currently rolling in and around New Orleans.
As for the cast, it's the usual assortment of names targeting all conceivable demographics. Respected art-house actress making a genre sojourn? Check: BLUE CAR's acclaimed Agnes Bruckner, who also toplines Lucky McKee's upcoming THE WOODS. Rapper-turned-actor for the urban crowd? Check: Method Man. Young pop-culture fixture most famous for being famous? Check: Bijou Philips. Hot up-and-comer from the TV world? Check: D.J. Cotrona of the much-hyped (albeit quickly cancelled) Fox series SKIN. Jonathan (RIDING THE BULLET) Jackson also stars.
