Die "Hack/Slash" Comic-Serie soll verfilmt werden...
In jedem Slasher-Film gibt es ein Mädchen, dass am Ende übrig bleibt. Die einzige Überlebende. Cassie Hack ist eine von ihnen. Sie überlebte einst den Angriff des brutalen Killers The Lunch Lady. Nun reist Cassie mit ihrem monströsen Partner, Vlad, durchs Land, immer auf der Jagd nach Slashern und perversen Mördern, um sie daran zu hindern, weiter Blut und Terror zu verbreiten...
Die "Hack/Slash" Comic-Verfilmung wird nicht vor 2013 in die Kinos kommen... Vorher soll ein animierter "Illustrated Film" kommen...
Heat Vision meldet...
Marcus Nispel, who directed last summer's Conan the Barbarian, has come aboard to helm Hack/Slash, Relativity’s adaptation of a horror-action comic book.
Alexandra Milchan, Adrian Askarieh and Daniel Alter are producing. [...]
The project has seen several writers and directors come and go since it first was set up at Universal’s now-deceased genre division Rogue Pictures, which later was acquired by Relativity.
Nispel briefly flirted with the project, which last had Fredrik Bond attached, but came back to it late last year.
Nispel is well known in the hacking-and-slashing business. On top of Conan, the commercials-turned-feature helmer directed the recent remakes of The Texas Chainsaw Massacre and Friday the 13th as well as a Viking movie titled Pathfinder.
The WME-repped director is also developing a horror movie called Blackmask.
The fate of a live-action "Hack/Slash" movie might be a little uncertain right now (though the project reportedly snagged a new writer late last year), but Cassie Hack will make the jump to the animated world next year with an "illustrated film" based on Tim Seeley's comic book series.
Produced by Halo-8 Entertainment, the "Hack/Slash" illustrated film (it's not a "motion comic," I'm told) will be adapted and directed by award-winning filmmaker Matt Pizzolo, who previously produced Halo-8's popular "GodKiller" illustrated film. Halo-8 has provided Splash Page readers with the first peek at the "Hack/Slash" film, courtesy of a short teaser...
According to Halo-8, the "Hack/Slash" film will be based on the "My First Maniac" story arc published by Image Comics. [...]
Like many of the undead killers Cassie Hack has had to take down in Devil's Due Publishing's comic book series "Hack/Slash," Rogue Pictures' big screen incarnation refuses to die in development.
Stephen Susco (Red, The Grudge) is the latest writer to hop aboard the property. He comes on the heels of Justin Marks, Todd Lincoln, Ben Magid and Martin Schenk. Lincoln was the first named attached and he was scheduled to direct until he stepped away to direct The Apparition for Dark Castle.
Shock was able to confirm Susco's involvement, however, he was not available to comment about his take on the project and whether or not he was starting from scratch or simply revising the script that's currently out there. [...]
Collider sprach kürzlich mit den Produzenten Adrian Askarieh und Daniel Alter...
[...] when we talked about "Hack/Slash", Alter confirmed Fredrick Bond is the director and said it’s going to start early next year. No casting yet but Alter says we’re going to hear something pretty soon. [...]
Newsarama.com sprach mit dem Autor Justin Marks...
NRAMA: [...] You are also writing the Hack/Slash movie, can you share what storylines are going to make it into the film?
JM: It won’t be an origin story, per se, but the origin will be covered. I think you’ll see the Lunch Lady as well as Cassie and Vlad. But we wanted to do something very different, because this is the first chance to see a slasher movie where there is more then one slasher! Because it follows a hunter, you’re going with her and her accomplice as they go from one to another, and building out the mythology of how this world works with its undead slashers. Cassie is a wonderful character, the one that Tim [Seeley] created and this is a character based movie, your going to get to know the people who are surviving or dying. I’ve been pulling lines, moments and scenes from the comics leading up to the numbered run that fans will notice.
NRAMA: Are we looking at a rating of "R"?
JM: It was written with that mentality in mind, yes, and the creator is involved and working intimately with the production. [...]
Scribe Justin Marks has been tapped to tackle "Hack/Slash," Rogue Pictures' adaptation of the Devil's Due Publishing comicbook Todd Lincoln will helm.
Comicbook, created by Tim Seeley and Stefano Caselli, revolves around Cassie Hack, a young woman who travels the country and takes on homicidal maniacs and serial killers along the way.
The actioner will be heavy on comedy and horror.
Adrian Askarieh and Daniel Alter, who most recently oversaw "Hitman" at Fox, will produce the project.
The two have been building a rep setting up comicbook or vidgame-based projects at several studios, including "Lost Squad," also at Rogue; "Kane and Lynch" at Lionsgate; and "Spy Hunter" at Universal. They also have "Jonny Quest" at WB, based on the TV toon.
Meanwhile, Marks is on a roll, landing high-profile comicbook, videogame and toy-based adaptations.
He is scripting "Voltron: Defender of the Universe" for New Regency and Fox; "He-Man and the Masters of the Universe" for Joel Silver and toymaker Mattel at Warner Bros.; and the Green Arrow actioner "Supermax," also at WB. He also penned "Street Fighter" for Hyde Park and Fox.
Bei Latino Review gibt es ein Interview mit den Produzenten Adrian Askarieh und Daniel Alter...
Hack/Slash’ what’s up with that?
Askarieh: We have a script, a director, we have a studio that is going to make it pre-strike. By pre-strike I mean by the pre June 30th strike. We are about to make a very big announcement on it.
Alter: For me, it’s my little baby. We are going to start, hopefully, in the spring. Todd Lincoln, our director, has an amazing vision. We have some great casting ideas. There’s a big announcement coming very soon. We are going to reinvent the horror genre with this franchise.
Are you a big horror genre fan?
Alter: Yeah, I love horror, man. I’m horror 101, you name it, and I see it. I love horror, ‘Halloween’ is one of my all time favorite films. ‘Scream’ had a profound effect on me when I saw it in theatres. It really is the benchmark. We really want to make the next ‘Scream’ with ‘Hack/Slash’. It’s ‘Scream’ meets ‘Blade’ basically. I think we are really going to be able to achieve that. [...]
[...] Is Megan Fox really involved?
Alter: You know, the Internet is an amazing thing. She’s a very interesting choice for it, and we like her potentially, but we’ve had no meetings with her. That is something that we would have to get further into pre-production and then see what happens. [...]
Creature Corner meldet...
[...] word around the internet is that Megan Fox is expressing interest on starring in Hack/Slash, Todd Lincoln's upcoming adaptation of the great comic. This rumor's been around for a few months now, but now the official Myspace page is verifying they heard the same thing. One can only assume that she would be playing the role of Cassie Hack [...]
[...] writer Ben Magid is working alongside 'Slash' director and co-writer Todd Lincoln to fine-tune this comic book adaptation of Tim Seeley's horror series.
Magid, once an assistant for David Kirschner (Frailty, Bride of Chucky), has been generating a fair amount of buzz since selling Pan to New Line last year. The story turns the "Peter Pan" mythos upside-down and inside-out with the titular flying punk now portrayed as a villain who is being tracked down by a cop bearing the name "Hook." It's currently set up at Brooklyn Weaver's Energy Entertainment.
Interesting that Magid should join Hack/Slash as the project is also a twist on pre-existing material - in this case the broad pantheon of slasher cinema. Published by Devil's Due, the comic book focuses on Cassie Hack and her partner, Vlad, as they scour the country seeking supernatural killers. Lincoln is making his directorial debut with the feature which is being produced by Hitman's Dan Alter, Adrian Askarieh and Howard Sun.
AICN zeigt ein paar sehenswerte Artworks zum Comic...
Universal's genre arm, Rogue Pictures, has picked up feature film rights to horror comic book series, Hack/Slash, with music video helmer Todd Lincoln set to direct for producers Adrian Askarieh and Daniel Alter. Lincoln will script. Lincoln co-wrote Fox Searchlight's remake of The Fly, which Lincoln has also been developing as a directing vehicle. Howard Sun is onboard as a co-producer.
Hack/Slash, created by Tim Seeley and Stefano Caselli, is a fan favorite sensation from Devil's Due Publishing, chronicling the adventures of Cassie Hack, a young woman who travels to small towns across the country hunting slashers in the vein of "Halloween"'s Michael Meyers, "Friday the 13th"'s Jason Vorhees, and A Nightmare on Elm Street"'s Freddy Kreuger.
Askarieh and Alter are producing Hitman (based on the video game series) at Fox, with Vin Diesel attached to star. Askarieh is producing Spy-Hunter with The Rock attached to star. Askarieh and Alter are currently developing a slate of high-concept and genre-based projects, including several video game and comic book properties about to be shopped or packaged.
