Even thought Bloody Disgusting exclusively reported this last summer, Wicker Man director Robin Hardy has revealed that he is finally moving ahead with new feature Wrath Of The Gods, which will complete a trilogy of Wicker films.
He spoke to ScreenDaily ahead of a 40th anniversary re-release of The Wicker Man, which has been digitally restored and has been labelled “The Final Cut”.
“I am just at the opening stages of financing it (‘Wrath Of The Gods’) and hope to make it next year,” said Hardy, who will also produce.
The writer-director added: “The first two films are all (about) offers to the Gods. The third film is about the Gods. I use the vehicle of the final act of Götterdämmerung (the last of Wagner’s Ring cycle).”
The new project, which is slated to shoot in the Shetlands, won’t be “heavily Wagner-esque” but is expected to explore similar themes to the previous two films.
