The producers of Found Footage 3D tell Bloody Disgusting that they are entering pre-production.
The independently financed film, produced by Texas Chainsaw Massacre co-creator Kim Henkel, is scheduled to begin shooting mid-May near Austin, TX.
The film tells the story of a group of filmmakers who set out to make “the first 3D found-footage horror film,” and find themselves in the first 3D found-footage horror film when the evil entity from their movie escapes into their behind-the-scenes footage.
“The time is ripe for this film,” says writer/director Steven DeGennaro. “The 3D aspect isn’t just a marketing ploy—it’s integrated into the story in a very Scream-esque sort of way. There are things that we can do, as a found-footage movie shot in 3D, that no found-footage movie or 3D movie has ever been able to do before.” He stresses that while the script has a lot of laughs, the film will be “truly terrifying.”
DeGennaro is producing, along with Charles Mulford.
Henkel has produced nine films to date, which have grossed $224 million at the worldwide box office. His latest effort, Butcher Boys, was released theatrically by Phase 4 in September.
