Exclusive: Warriors Creator Goes Sci-Fi!

Published

on

Walter Hill does sci-fi!The lovely lass known as Axelle got to attend a recent film festival in Turin and while there managed to have a brief chat with the one and only Walter Hill, the man who directed the 1979 mastepiece The Warriors among many other films. Most recently he’s been working on a show he created called “Broken Trail” as well as penning the script for a remake of The Warriors (nooooo!!!!!), but Axelle got him to talk about an entirely new project that could be interesting:

“I’m writing a science-fiction now,” he told her. “I’m happy with [my latest TV western] ‘Broken Trails,’ but I’m a difficult character, I need to do different things.

“I’m writing, directing and producing. It’s the nature of science-fiction, because they’re entirely conceptual, that you have to keep it a secret. I will say this, though: It takes place on earth, it is contemporary, it does not take place in the United States and in some ways it harkens back to the science fiction films of the Fifties and the Sixties when I was a kid. Of course it’s more sophisticated, but conceptually it’s much more one of those. As a director I’m no longer interested in what excited me when I was thirty years old, but I’m extremely interested in what excited me when I was ten years old.”

What could it be? Well we know he’s not referring to The Warriors remake for various reasons, the biggest of which being that it doesn’t take place in the U.S., so that leaves a huge realm of possibilities for the man to create something truly unique. And while it may not be in the realm of horror 100%, Hill is such an interesting character that I’m sure it’ll more than worth our time to keep an eye on it!

Zac Efron Looks Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil and Vile as Ted Bundy

Published

on

We told you a while back that Zac Efron would be assuming the role of charismatic serial killer Ted Bundy in Oscar-nominated documentary filmmaker Joe Berlinger’s new film Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil and Vile (that title is a wondrous mouthful); and today Efron himself took to Twitter to share the first image of himself as Bundy. Check it out!

Michael Werwie wrote the script for the project, which is told through the perspective of Elizabeth Kloepfer, Bundy’s longtime girlfriend, who went years denying the accusations against Bundy but ultimately turned him in to the police. Only nearing his execution, when Bundy began talking about his extensive and heinous murders, did Kloepfer, and the rest of the world, learn the true scope of his numerous and grizzly murders.

Principal photography began back in October 2017.

Make a Date With The Devil and Father Amorth

Published

on

Well, that headline’s not entirely accurate… you wouldn’t want to be a third wheel now, would you? What we’re talking about here is William Friedkin’s new documentary The Devil and Father Amorth. In it Friedkin witnesses first-hand the work of the Vatican’s in-house exorcist; and if that doesn’t pique your interest, I don’t know what will!

Deadline is reporting today that we can expect to see the flick sometime this spring in theaters via The Orchard.

Known as the “Dean of Exorcists,” Father Amorth (who turned 92 not so long ago) has performed thousands of exorcism rituals to rid evil from the human body.

In the early 1970s when I directed The Exorcist, I had not witnessed an exorcism; but I wondered how close I had come to portraying reality,” Friedkin tells the site. “I had been curious to meet Father Amorth for many years; and when he granted permission to meet and film him in Rome last May, it was the opportunity to complete the circle and see how close that film came to reality.
