Pyun Doing Lovecraft's Cool Air

Hawaiian-born filmmaker Albert (THE SWORD AND THE SORCERER) Pyun is working on a film adaptation of H.P. Lovecraft?s tale ?Cool Air,? and gave Fango the scoop on the project. ?We?re shooting now in Los Angeles and will wrap this Friday,? Pyun tells us. ?Robert Ladesich is the producer, and a new screenwriter, Cynthia Curnan, adapted the short story. Morgan [SPACE: ABOVE AND BEYOND] Weisser stars. My company, Filmwerks, will supervise distribution via Chris Davis International, and we hope to have it ready for release by October, just in time for Halloween!?

Pyun has been a devotee of Lovecraft, and this story in particular (also adapted in Brian Yuzna?s anthology film NECRONOMICON), for years, and when he saw the possibility to bring it to the screen himself, he didn?t hesitate. ?I?ve been a fan of it since I was a child,? he says. ?It always stuck in my head as something I wanted to put on film. Then I happened to read Cynthia Curnan's screenplay last year, and it captured my vision of the tale. I knew this was the perfect adaptation.? He?s particularly excited about one scene: ?I especially enjoyed shooting the main character?s heart attack because of its surprising twist in the story and its drama. Morgan conveyed the character?s bewilderment and fear in mesmerizing fashion.?

The cast also includes Crystal Green as the doctor (in a gender switch from the story), Wendy Phillips as the landlady and Virginia Dare as her daughter Estella (another sex change). Norbert Weisser, Morgan?s father and a veteran of THE THING and numerous Pyun films, plays a mysterious lodger with a dark, twisted secret.

The director adds that the story won?t rely so much on blood and guts. ?[We?ll have] more atmosphere and getting inside the character?s head,? Pyun says. ?There are a few effective effects shots, but I loved the screenwriter?s take on the main character?s internal paranoia and imagination. What is or isn?t real??
