Splice on the Verge of Distribution from Dark Castle

Good news today for those of us eager to see Vincenzo (Cube) Natali’s Frankenstein-esque new feature Splice! The film looks to be getting one hell of a wide release!

Deadline reports that “Joel Silver and his Dark Castle label [are] in the last stages of closing a distribution deal for the genetic mutation thriller Splice,” adding, “It will give the film a wide summer release on 3,000 screens and a P&A commitment north of $25 million, more likely in the vicinity of $35 million to $40 million.” Rock and roll, baby!

The flick, starring Adrien Brody, Sarah Polley, Delphine Chaneac, David Hewlett, and Brandon McGibbon, tells the tale of Elsa and Clive, two young rebellious scientists who defy legal and ethical boundaries and forge ahead with a dangerous experiment: splicing together human and animal DNA to create a new organism. Named Dren, the creature rapidly develops from a deformed female infant into a beautiful but dangerous winged human-chimera, who forges a bond with both of her creators – only to have that bond turn deadly.

    Aunt Creepy, you neglected to leave out some deal points that I and the director made part of the deal.

    1- No access whatsover to Dread Central or to any person who ever wrote for Dread Central
    2- No early review for Dread Central

    Warners was interested in why and well let’s just say that that’s the first studio where your reign of lies and shit ends. More to come.

    • The Woman In Black

      Anyone who EVER wrote for us?!? That covers a lot of people in the genre. If you’d like the full list, just let us know!

      • Don Murphy

        Sure Deb if there is a list of people that would admit to writing for your evil, illegal crapfest please forward it to me at mrdonmurphy AT hotmail .com.

        You’re already at the top of the list, pretender.

        • Uncle Creepy

          Really Deb, please, don’t even bother. Again, Don, should you feel the inclination to discuss our “woes” I’m always available via email – UncleCreepy@dreadcentral.com Hell, I’d be happy to even give you my phone number so we can discuss. Once again, I can assure you I have nothing against you, your movies, or anything of the sort. In fact, I’m a big fan of both Natural Born Killers, Shoot ‘Em Up, and a few others.

          • Don Murphy

            Tis funny that you call off Deb, the piece of human filth who revitalized the war with her misogynist attack against my film. A self-hating woman! How sad. Must be right unattractive. Up to that point I had taken your distorted face off the “Bad Guys” list on my site, as well as FoyBoy’s 600 pound girth. I had moved on, dismissing you jerkoffs as the never-bes you are. Then I didn’t realize this crap site was the remains of that previous crap site and did an interview with you, only to be excoriated by the pig that is Deb. Then you run illegal Splice photos and have to be forced to take them down. Then you run a one sided interview with a lying piece of shit and don’t even contact the wonderful director you allow to be attacked. Screw that. I’ll be taking you down and that laughing hyena face Moore with you.

            Once again. Thread locked. No more comments. YAY.

  • Avid Fan

    It’s like a giant soy-bean with eyes.

  • Terminal

    The clips I’ve seen have interested me very much. I hope I get to see it soon.

  • Vanvance1

    Good news. It’s been a long time since Cube and I’m very much looking forward to this. Could be the monster movie of 2010.

    Maybe they could market it by calling it a ‘reality horror movie’ and putting some pretentious gothy wanna be chicks in it. Why don’t we ever see a movie like that?

    • The Woman In Black

      Well, considering a couple of reviews have spoiled the ending with comparisons to a very teen-friendly book series, then possibly that market will be tapped after all.
