With The Horde working up some crazy buzz at this year’s Cannes, we got in touch with producer Xavier Gens, who directed the popular French slasher pic Frontier(s). While Xavier couldn’t really comment on Horde, he did have a very special treat for Bloody-Disgusting readers. Beyond the break you can take a look at the first ever concept art from Gens’ forthcoming Vanikoro, which has Philip Seymour Hoffman and Viggo Mortensen attached to star. Gens tells us shooting is to begin in New Zealand and Australia in 2010 as he is still working on the script that mixes the story of the Indianapolis S.S. with an island of hungry cannibals.
The French explorer La Perouse, was wrecked on Vanikoro in 1788. The ship Boussole was destroyed on a reef along with most of the crew. The second ship Astrolabe was also wrecked, but survivors salvaged enough to build a small ship and sailed away. Two survivors remained on the island into the early 1800’s.
Gens told us at the Toronto International Film Festival two years back that the crew will take on tiger sharks before landing on an island of cannibals.
