TORTURED SOULS PASSED?
Are you sitting down? This is some pretty bad news coming up, only it's sickening at the same time. Hopefully everyone can create enough buzz on the internet to spin some heads in the other direction. Universal has passed on Clive Barker's long awaited Tortured Souls movie, which is based on the McFarlane action figure set. Read on for the story...
During an interview with Revelations Clive Barker tells them:
'So... I finish all the drafts for Universal and the people I'm dealing with at Universal are really cool people and one of them says, 'I don't think we're going to make this movie,' and I said, 'OK... Why?' and they said, 'Because I think we're going to have to make another movie with demons in it and we don't want to be making two demon movies...'
'And, you know, I've been this way before, there's no use trying to persuade somebody, I mean a corporate decision is a corporate decision. But what I do have is a lot of people around town who would like to make this movie, so my hope is that between now and Christmas... though Christmas sort of starts early in L.A...
So it's not the end of the world, but Universal is going to regret this when the movie banks in $50 million at the box office.
