Jose Prendes Provides Updates on Two New Projects: Final Girl and A Magnificent Death from a Shattered Hand

Post Thumb:


Jose Prendes dropped us a line with updates on two new projects he’s working on, and while one is more along the lines of a spaghetti western, it has one of our favorite actor/directors involved, and Jose promises it will be especially violent and bloody, so we thought we’d pass along the info to our readers.

The name of the film is A Magnificent Death from a Shattered Hand (awesome title, right?), and here’s how Prendes describes it:

A MAGNIFICENT DEATH FROM A SHATTERED HAND tells the bloody story of a long-lost treasure and the greedy bastards out to reclaim it. Thomas Jane stars as Jonas Barnes, who embarks on a quest to find buried gold revealed to him by his father’s deathbed confession. While on the trail he manages to save a young girl, Catherine, from a gang of dirty, rotten kidnappers and in the process gets mistaken for one of them by the posse out to rescue her. A cat and mouse chase across the desert ensues, culminating in a violent gun battle where x marks the spot. This spaghetti-style western is Sergio Leone on crack. Thomas is set to star, produce, and direct. I will be writing and producing as well with Adam Finer. We’re very excited about this and are looking, hopefully, for a 2012 start date!

As for his other project, Final Girl (formerly known as Dog Eat Dog), it totally falls in our wheelhouse, and here are the details:

My script for FINAL GIRL (originally DOG EAT DOG) has been optioned by Cameron Larson of Aviator Entertainment (Sand Shark, David Arquette’s Glutton). It’s a bloody revenge thriller that I’ll be directing and co-producing. We are looking to start shooting sometime in 2012 with Lin Shaye attached to play a lesbian kidnapper.

Check out some early artwork for Final Girl below, and to stay up-to-date on the film, be sure to “like” Final Girl on Facebook.
