Darren Bousman is proving to be one of the genre’s busiest cats lately. Don’t believe us? No worries! We’ve got the first word on his latest project 11 11 11 that’s sure to prove our point. Count on it!
According to The Hollywood Reporter’s Heat Vision Blog Bousman is partnering with producer Wayne Rice to take on the 11:11 phenomenon via a horror-tinged thriller that will land in theaters on Friday, November 11, 2011, or 11/11/11. It is a Friday after all! Pretty nifty, no?
So what is the 11:11 phenomenon? It’s all centered on the emergence of that number in people’s lives that alerts them to angels or spirit guardians trying to communicate with them. Conspiracy theorists also point to the number 11’s involvement in historical events.
“With ‘Saw’ and ‘Repo,’ my career has been about finding new ways to freak people out; that’s what I want to do with this,” Bousman said. ‘We want to take this phenomenon and give it horrific purpose.”
Music to our ears.
Bousman is in the process of writing 11 11 11, which will take on the idea of 11 gates of Heaven and how at 11:11 on the 11th day of the 11th month, the 11th gate will open up and something from another world will enter the earthly realm for 49 minutes.
More on this one as it comes!
