Today there’s a rumor circulating on the web that Guillermo del Toro (Pan’s Labyrinth, Hellboy) will be directing a film entitled Haters for Universal Pictures sometime next year. We called in with the production company and got official word that the popular director will be co-producing the film and not necessarily get behind the camera. In addition to the news we also have a long synopsis for you that can be found inside.
Society is rocked by a sudden increase in the number of violent assaults on individuals. Christened ‘Haters’ by the media, the attackers strike without warning. Their attacks are brutal, remorseless and extreme. There are no apparent links between the Haters or their victims and no obvious reason for their violence. In seconds rational, controlled people become vicious killers. Everyone – irrespective of race, gender, age, sexuality or any other imaginable difference – has the potential to become either a Hater or a victim. This is a terror which knows no boundaries. You can no longer trust anyone, no matter how well you think you know them. You can no longer trust yourself. By the end of today you could be a killer. By the end of today you could be dead.
