Black Sunset Next Project for The Butcher Brothers
Their latest effort, The Violent Kind, is poised to debut at Sundance '10 this Monday, January 25th, and already Mitchell Altieri and Phil Flores (aka the Butcher Bros.) are looking ahead to their next project, a psychological horror feature entitled Black Sunset.
Per THR the duo have written and will direct the film for Cynthia Stafford's Queen Nefertari Productions, which will provide financing and packaging. Shooting is scheduled to commence in the summer.
Sunset will follow seven friends on a surf trip to Mexico that turns into something that these jaunts often tend to in horror films: a gory, betrayal-filled nightmare.
"The project immediately piqued my interest as soon as we read the screenplay," said Stafford, Queen Nefertari CEO. "Our goal is to build a strong slate of commercially viable feature films written and directed by smart filmmakers, and we look forward to embarking on this journey with two of the most talked about directors at Sundance."
We'll be keeping our eyes open for more on Black Sunset as well as following the progress of The Violent Kind, which has a similar sounding plot: Second-generation outlaw bikers retire to a secluded cabin to party only to end up on a drug-and-death bender.
