‘Phantasm’ Director Don Coscarelli in Pre-Production on Secret Project

We’d like to welcomePhantasm director Don Coscarelli to Twitter where he’s begun teasing his next directing project – his first feature since the well-received Bubba Hop-Tep from 2002. Over the past two days he has posted 3 important pieces of information: “Writing from an undisclosed location,” while also teasing “Pre-production begins.” On what you ask? Well, maybe his last tweet holds the answer. “Most only ride in a hearse once. Some are luckier,” the writer-director states while providing a link to a Phantasm-themed hearse. Could Coscarelli be working on the long gestured Phantasm 5, or has he begun pre-production on Bubba Nosferatu: Curse of the She-Vampires, another widely speculated sequel that’s been in development hell for years now? But maybe, just maybe it’s something else? Your guess is as good as mine at this point. We dropped an e-mail into the director and expect a “no comment” in return.
