Nothing shocks us anymore. Nothing. Way back in 1998, even before The Blair Witch Project became the phenom that it was, two filmmakers, Stefan Avalos and Lance Weiler, had their own hunt in the woods looking for a nasty local legend in The Last Broadcast. The film played like an A&E documentary with an ending so polarizing that many either sing its praises or damn it to hell. If you missed it, don’t worry. Something wicked this way comes.
We received word today that filmmaker John Stevenson is hard at work on a 3D animated remake of The Last Broadcast. The film is being produced by Loyal’s House of Blood Production, and Victor Miller (writer of Friday the 13th) is serving as associate producer. Even more interesting … Michele Pulaski and James Seward are reprising their roles as the characters Michelle Monarch and Jim Suerd.
“I went about the film carefully and revamped everything, including the notorious ending scene,” says Stevenson. “The next step is to move into animation. I want to release the film by the end of 2011. A teaser trailer should be done by March or April.”
Look for more on this one soon.
