Lynch Ready to Cross The Bridge?

Lynch to helm The Bridge?With Animals on the way already (the trailer’s in Video Dread), we could only hope for some more Skipp & Spector adaptations to be in the works as well. But could we be lucky enough to get one that the one and only Joe Lynch would direct?

That’s the word from Craig Spector, who told the crowd at last weekend’s Chicago Weekend of Horrors that they’re in early talks for an adaptation of the nature-gets-revenge novel The Bridge to be helmed by the Wrong Turn 2 director, Fangoria reports today.

This could be a geek dream come true as after Light at the End, The Bridge is the one novel Skipp & Spector fans have been most anxious to see translated to the big screen. With Lynch at the helm we can expect as faithful an adaptation of possible, considering the man is a huge fan of the Splatterpunk kings’ works.

Spector also revealed that Animals is screening for distributors this spring and that a sequel is in the works already. Light at the End is still a possibility as well, as Spector just penned a new script that will be sent out to interested parties soon.

    The Bridge was one of the only books that disturbed me so badly when I read it that I put it all the way back in the closet so I wouldn’t even see it to be tempted to read it again.

    The book is so horrifying that I shudder to think what the film would be like. It would probably be so fucked up that it would drive all those who watched it insane ala Sutter Cane’s work.

    Ye all know how I’m all squirrley about the Blob, right? Well this has the same effect on me, but in book form.

    This is such great news… Fucking brilliant, mind-damaging novel! There’s so much stuff in here that probably won’t translate very well, if at all (The attack of the mutant garden gnomes, for example), but fuck me if this couldn’t be seven shades of awesome!
