‘Husk’ Director Raises The Undead With ‘Monkey’s Paw’

Brett Simmons, the director behind After Dark’s Husk, is getting back behind the camera for the latest incarnation of The Monkey’s Paw, Bloody Disgusting can exclusively report.

Penned by Macon Blair (actor in Murder Party and the forthcoming Hellbenders ), the new film adaptation is based on the short story “The Monkey’s Paw” by W. W. Jacobs.

Sources explain that the modern take follows Jake Tilton who, after scoring the creepy “monkey’s paw” from a co-worker, finds his life completely flipped upside down after making a pair of wishes. (We’re told one wish resurrects his best friend Tony Cobb from the dead into a sort of unkillable zombie.) Cobb pressures Jake into using his final wish to reunite Cobb with his son, but Tony has other plans. He must outwit his psychotic friend who’s on a murder spree.

Shooting begins this September in New Orleans.
