Just in case you weren’t already excited enough about upcoming reboot Puppet Master: The Littlest Reich, written by Bone Tomahawk and Brawl in Cell Block 99‘s S. Craig Zahler(!), we’ve been informed that Italian legend Fabio Frizzi is providing the score!
We tip our hats to Rue Morgue for getting the exclusive on this one.
“Our total reimagining of PUPPET MASTER is now the best-sounding gonzo, gory, gruesome horror/comedy of all time thanks to Fabio,” says producer Dallas Sonnier.
Frizzi, for anyone who needs a brush up course, was behind a handful of insanely cool Italian horror scores, including The Beyond, Zombie and City of the Living Dead!
The cast includes Udo Kier, Barbara Crampton, Thomas Lennon (Hellbaby), Jenny Pellicer, Nelson Franklin (Scott Pilgrim), Charlyne Yi (Cloverfield), and Alex Beh, with Tina Parker (The Final Destination), Skeeta Jenkins and Michael Paré (Streets on Fire).
“Puppet Master: The Little Reich centers on a recently divorced young man who discovers a mint condition Blade doll in his deceased brother’s closet and plans to sell the toy at a convention in Texas celebrating the 30th anniversary of the infamous Toulon Murders. All hell breaks loose during the auction when a strange force animates all of the various puppets throughout the convention as they go on a bloody killing spree.”
Sonny Laguna and Tommy Wiklund, who helmed the awesome Evil Dead-esque Wither, directed from a script written by Bone Tomahawk screenwriter S. Craig Zahler.
