Stan Winston’s Creature Feature ‘Speed Demon’ Hits High Speed

Wow, I completely forgot about this project as it has been on the shelf for over three years. Paradox Entertainment, the company bringing Conan back to the bigscreen, has optioned the horror pitch Speed Demon, co-developed by the f/x-vet Stan Winston, for Peter Winther to direct. Winther also developed the project, described as a supernatural actioner about an underworld enforcer, who while hunting a small-time crook on a desert highway discovers that he is also being tracked by a mysterious, terrifying creature. Mike Sorrentino and Randy Vampotic penned the script for the project that Patrick Tatopoulos (the Underworld franchise, I Am Legend) worked with Winston to design creatures for the film.
