Bloody Disgusting learned that Peter Briggs (Hellboy co-writer, and the forthcoming Mortis Rex) will be getting beind the camera for Panzer 88 from his own screenplay. Gary Kurtz (Star Wars(!)) is producing. In an interview with Briggs from this past October we learned that “Panzer is another supernatural thriller: basically a character piece set in a German King Tiger tank in Russia in World War 2. It’s five guys in a tin can, and something’s trying to stop them making it home. It’s creepy, and smart.” Briggs is also scheduled to direct Mortis Rex, which was announced in the trades last November with Mummy producer Jim Jacks. Mortis is currently in pre-production.
