When your track record is 0-4 it’s tough to get excited for your next flick. Such is the case with Mr. Mark Nispel, the director of CONAN THE BARBARIAN, PATHFINDER, THE TEXAS CHAINSAW MASSACRE, and FRIDAY THE 13th. See anything in there that you liked? Yeah… didn’t think so. Still, I think this guy could have a good movie in him. CONAN came close to working but it just never came together. Nispel’s latest deal could be the one to stick.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, Nispel is now set to helm the adaptation of horror-action comic “Hack/Slash” for Relativity Media. The story centers around a badass heroine who hunts down the killers of typical slasher victims (see: hot chicks bumping dirty, kids pulling on joints, hotties home alone).
THR says that the project has seen several writers and directors come and go since it was first set up at Universal’s now-deceased genre division Rogue Pictures, which later was acquired by Relativity. Hopefully this gets off the ground; the story sounds cool as hell, I just wish the director had a better track record.
SEE YOU ON FORTY DEUCE,
