Slipknot frontman Corey Taylor recently let us know that he has finished the script for his first currently untitled horror flick, and he’s “aggressively looking for investors and producers.” Sweet. And today we learned that none other than Tom Savini and Jason Baker will be providing the special effects make-up for Taylor’s first film.
Baker tells Daily Dead: “I am thrilled that we are able to finally start slowly talking about the fact that Tom and I are going to be involved with Corey Taylor’s new horror movie, and that we will be handling the special makeup effects for it. We’re not allowed to talk about plot details or titles or anything like that right now, but I will say that the script is totally f–ked up, Corey’s got some really sick things planned for this, and I’m super excited to be a part of it.”
He continues: “We have always had such a great time collaborating with Corey, doing his masks and everything, but the best thing about working with him is that I made a friend. Corey’s such a wonderful, fun person to be around. The guy has been through hell, and to come out of everything that he has laughing about it, those kinds of people are such unicorns. So, when they come into your life, you just want to hold on to them with everything, and of course, you want to work with them and do whatever you can to support their creativity. We’re extremely excited.”
