The legend of La Llorona is a truly frightening bit of folklore, but as of yet no one has done it justice movie-wise. Thankfully a new flick is on the way that is looking to change that, and you’re gonna Weep when you read the news!
From the Press Release
BoulderLight Pictures is proud to announce WEEP, a new horror film inspired by the coveted “La Llorona” legend, set to go into production in the spring of 2014. Written by Blood List writers T.J. Cimfel and David White, the project is set to be a modern take on the classic ghost story.
“We’re incredibly excited to be bringing this terrifying and rich legend to North American audiences,” said producer J.D. Lifshitz. “David and T.J. have helped cook up something truly scary and original, and we hope to thrill fans of the legend as well as garner new ones.”
BoulderLight Pictures is working off of the success of their recently released body-horror pic Contracted (via IFC Midnight) to deliver WEEP to an even larger audience, utilizing a bigger budget and higher profile cast. The filmmakers are bridging the gap in the marketplace by making a film to satisfy a wide array of distinctive moviegoers from the Hispanic community to horror and thriller fans and genre-loving cinephiles alike.
“It’s no big secret that the Hispanic community makes up a substantial portion of moviegoers,” said producer Raphael Margules. “We couldn’t be more enthusiastic about bringing one of the most well-known characters in Hispanic folklore to life on the big screen in a way that both honors ‘La Llorona’ and frightens audiences to their core.”
While plot details are being kept under wraps, the film will tell of a modern haunting of the infamous weeping woman, “La Llorona,” set in America. Raphael Margules and JD Lifshitz are producing on behalf of BoulderLight Pictures.
