No Toolbox 2 for Reddick
Just a few days back we told you guys about the possibility of Toolbox Murders 2, which was apparently being written by Jeffrey Reddick (Day of the Dead redux). The story came from Fangoria, so of course Reddick got in touch with them to set the record straight:
”I’m not writing that film,” he clarified to the mag. “I met with Tony Didio, one of the producers, about a year and a half ago and discussed the project with him and Dean. I had some ideas on how to do a sequel, if the rights were free and clear. But it was my understanding that the producers, whom Tony sold the rights to, were working with [previous Toolbox scripters] Jace Anderson and Adam Gierasch on the new movie. Anyway, nothing real came of those initial meetings, and I haven’t spoken to Tony Didio since then. I don’t know the status of the project, but I’m not writing it.”
Weird. I wonder how it came to their attention that he was? Anyway, Reddick did tell Fango about what he is working on now: his directorial debut, Final Cut, which is about a disgraced horror director who finds a way to bring people’s fears to life.
