Dante Goes 3D With The Hole, No Hell

Looks like Joe Dante may be moving on from the Drew McWeeney/Scott Swan feature Bat Out of Hell according to a new video blog posted on This is Some Scene. He doesn’t explain why he may not be attached to the vampires on a plane film, but he did confirm that he's getting ready to shoot The Hole.

    Plot Synopsis:

    As a red eye flight from Los Angeles to New York takes off, everything seems to be normal. That is until the co-pilot kills the pilot and a rouge group of coach passengers head into first class armed and ready to kill. Their claim - there are 9 passengers in the front of the plane who must die tonight. They are vampires, and our "heroes" will crash the plane if they have to in order to ensure what must be done is done.
