Hack/Slash has seen more directors than I really care to name, and today The Hollywood Reporter announced that Marcus Nispel is the latest name attached to direct the comic to film adaptation. On top of Conan, Nipsel has directed other questionable films such as the recent remakes of The Texas Chainsaw Massacre and Friday the 13th. Now this is likely to piss off some fans, so feel free to rant off in the comments.
Hack/Slash, created by Tim Seeley and Stefano Caselli, centers on Cassie Hack, a woman who symbolizes the cliche of the lone girl who survives at the end of every horror movie. In this case, the girl not only survived but has become a killer of killers. Along with a hulking protector named Vlad, Hack travels across the country hunting slashers in the vein of Halloween’s Michael Myers, Friday the 13th’s Jason Voorhees and A Nightmare on Elm Street’s Freddy Krueger.
And, in case you’re wondering…this is what he looks like:
