Are you a huge fan of Drive? How about Valhalla Rising or Bronson?

What if I told you that writer-director Nicolas Winding Refn was developing a new horror movie? Yup, he is.

He’s tapped Polly Stenham, one of the country’s most acclaimed young playwrights, to pen the all-female horror script I Walk With the Dead.

He’s got a lot of stick for doing films some people think are violently misogynistic,” Stenham tells Standard. “So he approached me with the idea of doing something different.

When asked if it be blood-splattered or more of a psychological thriller, Stehham said, “It’s going to have a bit of everything.

Drive‘s Carey Mulligan, pictured, is rumored to star.

      Krug you may end up liking ONLY GOD but (friendly advice here) lower your excitement/anticipation for it. i worship his DRIVE but ONLY GOD was terrible! i literally hated the movie. i was so disappointed. just a heads up!

      but i’m excited for this horror movie from Refn!

    Only God Forgives was so terrible. Drive was great. Hopefully Refn doesn’t fuck it up like he did Only God Forgives.

    • djblack1313

      oneofthosedeadfckers, i agree. ONLY GOD was awful and was a huge let down. DRIVE is indeed awesome.

    Oh wow! I just watched Drive last night! It’s a great film and I’m in the minority who thinks that Only God Forgives is an even better film. I think Only God Forgives is such a deep and atmospheric film. It reminded me of something David Lynch would do and I love David Lynch. I also appreciated it much more when I saw this video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nOPZURubLyU

    A horror film by this man could be dazzling.

    Valhalla Rising is the perfect definition of a Ragnar acid trip,a Scandinavian “enter the void”;
    Also Bronson and the Pusher trilogy were amazing!
