A month or so ago we got our first taste of the “illustrated film” adaptation of Godkiller, written and directed by award-winning filmmaker Matt Pizzolo, when it was announced that Lance Henriksen and Bill Moseley had signed on to the project. Today things got a lot more interesting with the news that three more genre stars, all female, are on board as well.
Danielle Harris, Katie Nisa, and Nicki Clyne are the ladies of whom I speak, and in the words of Pizzolo, “Each one has a bold and unique personality that channels a rich depth and humanity into the film. The ladies of Godkiller are ferocious mixes of strength, sexuality, and survivalism… it’s a pretty tough world [illustrator] Anna Muckcracker and I created, and these characters need brave, powerful voices.”
As a refresher, Godkiller takes place in a dark future after economic collapse, after nuclear holy war, and after Earth is colonized by alien races. Tommy and his kid sister Lucy live in an orphanage in one of the few remaining city-states, but Lucy is critically ill and desperately in need of a new heart. Tommy’s odyssey to find a new heart for his sister begins when he follows an organ-stealing prostitute named Halfpipe out of the city-state and into the savage borderland known as Outer City. Godkiller mixes unforgiving brutality, quantum physics, conspiracy theory, and secret history for an iconoclastic hero’s journey like none before it.
Producer Halo-8 Entertainment intends to release limited edition, serialized short-form DVDs throughout the spring and summer before releasing the full-length feature theatrically in the fall of 2009. They also plan to unveil a new and exclusive preview clip from Godkiller during Fangoria’s Weekend of Horrors in Los Angeles April 17-19, 2009.
