Darren Bousman Updates ‘Repo!’ Status

Today director Darren Lynn Bousman updated his Myspace blog with an update on his insane project, Repo! The Genetic Opera (trailer), which will hit theaters this spring from Lionsgate. Inside you can read about the daunting task and how he’s almost ready to show the film to the studio heads (yikes!) In the not-so-distant future when an epidemic of organ failures devastates the planet, scientists gear for a massive organ harvest. A biotech giant comes up with easy organ payment plans, but all financed organs are subject to legal default, including repossession at the hands of repo men.

From DLB’s MySpace blog:

Hey all!!! Long time no talk!!! It has been all sorts of crazy… But long story short – I have been spending every waking minute on REPO… This is by far the most complex thing I have ever done – but also the most rewarding… Every day I come to edit room – I am reminded how cool and different this project is… It truly is the most original thing I have ever been involved with…

Next week I have to show the movie to the all the STUDIO HEADS – - I pray to GOD they get this movie – because it truly is out there… It seems a lot of movies these days are cookie cutter – and ‘the same’. There is a reason for that… Because they are a proven formula… Aint nothing formulaic about this movie…

This morning I woke up and saw that ARROW IN THE HEAD listed us as the number 1 most anticipated horror film of ’08. I was so taken aback – at times I think no one has even heard of REPO – then I see this – and I flip out…

So start spreading the word now – - tell your friends… Fuck – call the studio and tell them how excited you are… It’s time for something different – and this is it!
