Vinnie Jones’ (‘Midnight Meat Train’) latest horror outing is Brendan Foley’s ‘Bog Bodies’ and both producers Paul Valentine and Joe Condren have revealed US distribution plans for the movie. The revalation came during an interview chat with the Irish Film & Television Network (IFTN).
‘Bog Bodies’ is the tale of a 2000-year-old warrior whose corpse is discovered, discarded, then brought back to life to seek vengeance on a handful of people with dark secrets.
“We have done a deal with Grindstone Entertainment Group who are releasing Bog Bodies through Lionsgate in early 2009,” says Valentine of the film which has been completed since early last year. “Grindstone bought North American rights and it’s a fairly big US deal we did with them. It’s a move in the right direction for our project. The dates that we have might change slightly, they have a slot for us to go out with their five horror films. Lionsgate have bought all rights for the film in North America so they can do what they want with it really, whether it is going to cinema release or straight to DVD we are not sure yet.”
