Stockwell Finds Sanctuary

John Stockwell to helm SanctuaryWord has come down via Variety this morning that a director has been chosen to helm Sanctuary, the Stephen Susco-scripted adaptation of John Connolly’s novel Bad Men.

Said helmer is none other than John Stockwell, who last underwhelmed us with 2006’s Turistas, but will hopefully show that it was just a fluke and he really can direct a good scary movie. He more than likely won’t have hot girls in bikinis to fall back on like he did for Turistas and Blue Crush, which should force him to grow.

Sanctuary is the story of a woman who seeks the titular refuge on the eponymous island off the coast of Maine. Of course, the island is said to be haunted, which she soon finds out the hard way is very true.

    “Oh yes, there will be bikinis!”
    Any time you have a leading lady mixed with “island(s)” you get bikini. Using his track record as proof of course.

      He’s like reverse David DeCouteau…in other words, every other director in Hollywood.
