Anything is scary when you make it monster-sized. But when you take a creature that has the word “monster” in its accepted, everyday name, you’re really raising the bar. Gila! is a remake of the ’50s film The Giant Gila Monster, and we’ve got some concept art and promo posters for you to feast your eyes on. Read on!
The conceptual designs of the monster you’ll see below were created by Charles Chiodo (of the Chiodo Bros.), co-writer of Killer Klowns From Outer Space and puppet art director on Trey Parker’s Team America: World Police. As you can see, the artwork is quite realistic with a creature feature feel to it.
The rumor we’ve heard is that Gila! is going to open in drive-in theaters across the United States when the official release date (yet to be announced) arrives. The film has wrapped production so Gila! can’t be that far off. The word we get from Dread’s most ambitious tipster, Avery G, is that director Jim Wynorski has “really outdone himself” with this film. Take a look at the conceptual posters below and give the film a like on the Gila! Facebook page.
