Marshall to Helm a Sacrilege

Neil Marshall to direct SacrilegeHow weird is this? I was just with Doomsday director Neil Marshall all weekend at Fear Fest and never once did we get a peep about a film called Sacrilege

Nevertheless, Variety announced this morning that Sacrilege will be Marshall’s next film, a period horror movie set during the Old West. “It is set during the Gold Rush, a time remembered for incidents like the Donner Party,” Marshall told the trade. “It is meant to be a pitch-black, gritty, period horror movie.”

It’s just so weird, I tell you; this is the first I’ve ever heard of it, and I’ve talked to the man numerous times. Apparently it’s been a passion project for a few years now, too. The Unforgiven by way of Lovecraft , he calls it. Rogue will release Sacrilege, which Marshall will be writing, as well .

Keep it here for more details and look out for our series of Doomsday interviews going up all week long!

    I’m there as there can be. I’m very trusting of Marshall these days.

    I’m sold. But then I again, I’d be on just about anything Marshall has up his sleeves. I loved “Dog Soldiers” and “The Descent”, and I’m aching to see “Doomsday” this weekend.

    “Sacrilege” sounds like fun to me. Hell, so do all of his other pending projects: “Eagle’s Nest”, “Outpost”, “The Ninth Legion”, “Sherlock Holmes”, etc.

    Bring ‘em on!
