Itís been a while since weíve heard anything on THE STORYTELLER, the ambitious independent horror film written and directed by Andrew Getty. Fango got a chance to talk to Michael Berryman, who plays the nasty Cadaver character in the movie, and he gave us a quick update. ďTHE STORYTELLER has been a labor of love for about two and a half yearsóstarting up, stopping, starting up again,Ē he tells us. ďWeíve finally wrapped it all up, and itís being edited right now. Itís the most ambitious project Iíve ever been involved in, and Iím really looking forward to it. Weíre hoping itíll come out this year.Ē
Berrymanís co-stars in THE STORYTELLER include Sean Patrick (TVís DEAD ZONE) Flanery, Fred Koehler, Dina (SAW) Meyer and Brianna (NIGHT OF THE LIVING DEAD 3D) Brown, and the HILLS HAVE EYES fave couldnít be more enthusiastic about the project. ďItís a brilliant screenplay; I think itís the most intelligent script Iíve read in 30 years,Ē he says. ďItís a psychological horror-thriller that relies on old-school concepts of practicality, and things happening before the camera, right in front of the lensóno CGI. Itís smart dialogue, with subthemes that interweave throughout.Ē Weíll keep you posted about more STORYTELLER updates.
