Official details have been released for Elevator Men, a new thriller that traces the exploits of a single mom in pursuit of Mr. Right, who ends up meeting a horrific creature in a human guise. This, my friends, goes way beyond beer goggles!
The Hollywood Reporter broke the news tonight that Summit Entertainment is in the process of picking up former DreamWorks executive Marc Haimes’ original screenplay Elevator Men. They also report that the project is very likely to change titles in the near future so don’t get too accustomed to it!
“It’s a reaction to all of these stories now — TV shows and movies — that play this kind of romantic, fantastical, sexy aspect of getting involved with monsters,” Haimes tells THR. “This is the dark, sinister version of what really happens when you decide you’re going to get close to really bad things. That fantasy element is something I wanted to look at and play the exact opposite: the grim reality of bedding down with a monster.”
Lord knows we’ve all done that. Keep it here for more as it comes. And yeah, we know the above image has nothing to do with this project, but is there ever a wrong time for a Shining reference? Didn’t think so.
