Creation Weekend of Horrors
With the Creation LA Weekend of Horrors in its second day, some REALLY interesting news came out of the Behind the Mask reunion panel just minutes ago, and being that we were on the scene, we’ve got all the latest gory details on Before the Mask: The Return of Leslie Vernon.
According to director/creator Scott Glosserman, they want to do a sequel, but it is far from a certainty. The script for it picks up right at the end of the first film. Same tone, same aesthetics. Together with Behind the Mask co-writer David J. Stieve, Glosserman has found a way to continue the story of Leslie (Nathan Baesel) and Taylor (Angela Goethals) that makes sense. They’ve already spoken with Robert Englund to reprise his Ahab role of Doc Halloran. The filmmakers even have locations waiting, and most of the cast is in place and nailed down, but there no financiers as pf uet.
In Before the Mask: The Return of Leslie Vernon, we find Leslie disappointed and depressed that his fame did not catch on. He wants to get back to work.
“We’re trying to get all the elements together,” says Glosserman. “We’re even trying to crowd fund in part. We might enlist the Hatchet Army. We’ve talked to the Alamo Drafthouse, and we’re talking to people like Dread Central. The idea is to maybe pre-sell DVDs on the website to raise money to be able to go see distributors and get a co-financier or pre-sell some territories.”
Hey, Scott, whatever you need, brother. Let’s get it done!
