One upcoming project that has definitely got our attention is the “illustrated film” adaptation of Godkiller, written and directed by Matt Pizzolo based on the comic book of the same name he created with illustrator Anna Muckcracker. As previously reported, genre faves Tiffany Shepis, Danielle Harris, Lance Henriksen, and Bill Moseley are all lending their voice talents to the project.
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.
Those of us who attended the recent LA Weekend of Horrors (wrap-up report here in case you missed it) were fortunate enough to see a sneak peek of what Pizzolo and crew have up their sleeves. If you couldn’t be there, Fangoria has posted it online, and you can check it out below.
Producer Halo-8 Entertainment originally planned to debut Godkiller as a series of short-form DVDs, but according to Fango “response to early footage has been so positive that they are now eying festival and theatrical play this fall.” We’ll report back as we learn more.
