MARKED MAN TALKS DEMON SCRIPT
Fango pal Adam Gierasch got in touch to provide a few more details on MARKED, the script he wrote with partner Jace Anderson that will be the first feature in Tobe Hooper and Moonstone Entertainment?s TH Nightmare series. 'It?s a supernatural film noir about an alcoholic cop investigating a series of brutal murders, each victim marked with a distinctive tattoo,' Gierasch says. 'I truly believe it?s the scariest thing we?ve written, with a really nasty demon in it, but it?s also a really hard-boiled detective story, which we had always wanted to write. It?s set in Los Angeles? Little Tokyo, but we didn?t write it thinking of Asian horror films; it?s inspired by [mystery novelists] James Ellroy and Raymond Chandler.' MARKED is supposed to start shooting in February with Hooper directing?after he?s wrapped up MORTUARY, the Gierasch/Anderson-scripted chiller that rolls in late November.
And that?s not all Gierasch and Anderson have up their sleeves, as the former reveals they also recently penned an undead epic. 'It?s untitled right now, but basically it?s DELIVERANCE with zombies,' he says. 'It?s about a group of people on a river-rafting trip which is interrupted by long-dead mercury miners, who come back to life, and gory hijinx ensue. It?s a massive movie with nonstop action, and I promise it has some zombie stuff that no one has seen or imagined before. It?s got a lot of new twists on the undead mythology. Millennium Films/Nu Image is going to do it.' As always, watch this site for further information.
