Zombie, who wouldn’t reveal any plot details, was able to confirm one fact: that it takes place on Halloween night.
“31, yeah, because it takes place on October 31st,” he tells the site before debunking some fan-generated myths behind it.
When asked if the film recalls Captain Spaulding (from House of 1,000 Corpses and The Devil’s Rejects), Zombie explained:
“No, it’s totally different. All I can tell you is that it’s a completely original idea, it’s something new. It’s not based on anything. I’ll start shooting the movie in the fall. So hopefully starting from October, I’ll start shooting it. For right now, I’m going to keep the details secret. But it’s not based on anything.”
The site pushed forward asking about the Spaulding-look-a-like in the below video.
“Well, he doesn’t really look like him, I think. There’s a clown thing in the movie, but it has nothing to do with Captain Spaulding. And what is in the movie doesn’t look like Captain Spaulding either, maybe the people think the poster does but the movie won’t.”
This also debunks the rumor that 31 was to be a remake of Stephen King’s “It”.
What do you think? And a special thanks to ‘Travis E.’ for the tip.
