Barker Talks Tortured Souls Movie
Clive Barker sat down the folks at Fearnet this weekend to jaw about the Midnight Meat Train DVD (review), and at one point the subject of the long-suffering Tortured Souls movie came up in the conversation.
”I think it'll happen. I think it'll happen probably only when I've got back into the swing of directing. There's a script I like very much. I love the figures, the sculptures. I think they're beautiful, detailed things,” he explained. ”Do I want to see those things walk onto the screen and speak? Damn right I do. So I would like to make sure that happens at some point. But right now we've got a lot of scripts that are already written, and I want to get those out and have people shooting them. But I'm a tenacious son of a bitch, you know – I'm Italian-Irish – and one of these days if it gets done, it gets done. I think what Todd's company did when they created the Tortured Souls stuff was superb, and I think it will be wonderful to see those things breathe and take on life and step onto the screen.”
So don’t lose all hope yet; a Tortured Souls movie still has a chance at making it to the big screen. It could just be a while before it happens. Personally I think if we have to wait for Barker himself to direct it, it’ll be more than worth the time spent hoping for this to actually happen.
