When you hear the name Mel Brooks, the last thing you think of is horror movies. The closest the man has ever come personally to our genre is the wondrously entertaining and still very much kickass horror comedy Young Frankenstein (which by the way there is never a wrong time to watch), but that’s about to change as his company Brooksfilms is taking a little walk on the dark and murderous side.
Brooks tells Variety in a recent interview that production is gearing up for a flick called Pizzaman.
“Pizzaman is a flat-out horror film that I’ll keep my name away from, in case people think it’s a comedy,” he tells the site. Rudy De Luca and Steve Haberman are set to tackle writing duties.
Though he himself hasn’t dabbled much in our genre, Brooksfilm also produced David Cronenberg’s The Fly remake as well as The Fly II.
Further details are scant at the moment, but look for more on this one soon!
