It’s been a long road for Cube director Vincenzo Natali to bring his ten-years-in-the-making film Splice to the big screen, and now that Dark Castle has acquired the creature feature, he’s finally putting the finishing touches on his masterpiece.
Fangoria caught up with Natali for an interview, and the director had the following to share with fans:
“You’re going to see a slightly nipped-and-tucked version,” Natali tells Fango. “I’m actually going into the editing room next week, and if they’re true to their word, it’s just going to be cosmetic. It really comes down to Joel [Silver]. He loves the movie and actually enjoys the parts that would scare most producers away. He’s being very courageous releasing this. There are also a few things I’m changing after seeing the film with an audience. I believe what will come out of it will be a new and improved cut, but in essence, it’ll be the same film.”
Very cool. Hit up the above link for the entire interview, and look for the film in theatres on June 4th.
Splice 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.
