The Cannes market is loaded with surprises that range from random acquisitions (Magnet nabbing Rubber) to bizarre announcements (Romero directing Deep Red 3D). As a horror fan the best of news comes when a new label is created with the sole purpose of delivering a mass amount of genre films. Announced this morning is UXB (Unexploded Bomb), a new genre arm to Jinga Films that has two new horror films lined up for production later this year.
Jinga Films is setting up a new genre label UXB (Unexploded Bomb).
UXB’s first project will be action horror The Maddening about an American rock band, who are stranded in Serbia during an outbreak of mass hysteria caused by a biological weapons leak.
Craig Fairbrass (Dead Cert, Devil’s Playground) has joined the project to play a former SAS soldier who comes to their rescue. The Maddening will be produced by Julian Richards and Nikola Pantelic with Milan Todorovic (Zone of the Dead) directing.
It is also working on psychological horror Suicide Solution about a father and daughter who embark on a murder spree in Austin, Texas. It will be produced by Bob Portal and directed by Julian Richards (The Last Horror Movie).
