This is just obnoxious; this morning Variety got word that Aria Films and First Circle Films are teaming with Axis 3D to produce a 3-D movie called The Mortician. Sounds intriguing based on the title alone, no?
Problem is the only description for it is this; The redemption tale in which kindness triumphs over cruelty falls within the urban noir, contemporary fairy tale and psychological thriller genres.Annoying, yes?
So we did some searching and came up with a little bit more, including the teaser art you see on your right. According to the film’s listing on Aria Films’ official site, The Mortician will be about The Mortician processes cadavers with an ice-cold disregard. A living corpse. Until the battered body of a young woman spreads warmth into his life.
Aw, a love story for the dead, how sweet. Gareth Maxwell (Faster Faster Kill Kill) Roberts wrote the script and will be directing the 3-D film, which is set to start rolling in early 2009. Keep it here for more very soon!
Hope a battered body will show you warmth someday in the Dread Central forums!
