Mark L. Smith
Around about a week ago we brought you a news story regarding an untitled horror project penned by Mark L. Smith (Vacancy) with Platinum Dunes partners Michael Bay, Brad Fuller, and Andrew Form along with Room 101's Steven Schneider. Today Smith spoke a little bit about it.
Another writer that has been hot on Hollywood's script list is Mark L. Smith. Smith, who thus far has penned Vacancy and The Hole 3D, has several forks in the fire including the long talked about remake of Pascal Laugier's stunning film Martyrs.
Remember that news story a while back in which Platinum Dunes producer Brad Fuller stated that he and partner Andrew Form are looking to get away from the horror genre for a bit? Yeah, well, not so much.
How cool is it to see Joe Dante’s name in the trades for two days in a row? Very cool, that’s how! Yesterday we told you he’d be directing the new film from Masters of Horror writers Drew McWeeny and Scott Swan, Bat out of Hell; today he was officially attached to another outstanding horror project, The Hole.
I wonder if anyone will confuse this new movie called The Hole with the Thora Birch film of the same name from a few years back. I also wonder why the hell screenwriters/studios can’t be a little more creative with their goddamn titles.
