It was announced just yesterday that James Gunn (Slither, Guardians of the Galaxy) is returning to the horror genre with an upcoming film he’s producing, which will reunite Gunn with the star of his own Slither, Elizabeth Banks. Plot details are being kept under wraps at this time, but Gunn spoke a bit about the project on Facebook.
“Many of you know Elizabeth Banks has been one of my close friends ever since she starred in my directorial debut Slither (2006 movie). What most of you don’t know is that we have tried repeatedly to team up again since that time – or, more accurately, I have tried to get her to do something in almost every movie I’ve made since then, but the project was never exactly right for her.
But about a year ago my brother Brian, my cousin Mark, director David Yarovesky, producer Simon Hatt and I started coming up with an idea for a horror film that excited me in a way nothing outside of Guardians has in years – it was personal, and different, and perfectly suited for our times. And, yes, terrifying.
After my friends over at H Collective agreed to partner up with us, I knew I finally had the right project for Elizabeth. I cannot wait to tell you guys more about it, but we’re going to keep the specifics on the DL for the time being.
But I will tell you, we start shooting in less than a month!”
Brian and Mark Gunn wrote the script, being directed by David Yarovesky (The Hive).
