One of the most anticipated films is Todd Lincoln’s Hack/Slash, an adaptation of the popular comic book. Although the film is yet to be shot, it sounds as if things are progressing nicely for the project and we hope they’ll be shooting soon enough. Today Lincoln e-mailed to let us know about a new update regarding the film, read on for the skinny.News from Comics Catch:
“[The script is] tight, it’s fresh and I’m ready to shoot this fucker. Fortunately, our team members at Rogue Pictures are not micro-managers. They’re smart, decisive and true fans of the genre,” he told the blog. “This is not an origin story movie. It cuts to the chase and drops you in the shit by minute one. The film will stay true to the style, heart and voice of the comics. Fans are absolutely going to get the Cassie and Vlad they know and love. Tonally, the movie is much more grounded and serious than the comic. There’s a sprinkling of humor to balance the scares, but this will be a lean, vicious, blood-soaked, hard R fright fest. The goal is to create the ultimate slasher film.”
Created by Tim Seeley and Stefano Caselli, comicbooks from Devil’s Due Publishing center on Cassie Hack, a young woman who travels the country, taking on homicidal maniacs and serial killers along the way.
