WES CRAVEN Returns To Horror With 25/8!
Well, the man’s early work is being remade at this point (LAST HOUSE ON THE LEFT, NIGHTMARE ON ELM STREET), so it’s only fitting that he make a return to the genre now before they run out of stuff of his to remake! Variety reports that Wes Craven will write and direct 25/8, a thriller that marks his first original horror script since 1994’s Wes Craven’s NEW NIGHTMARE. (Guess we’re not counting HILLS HAVE EYES 2!) According to the article, Craven said the film unveils a signature villain, a serial killer who turns up 15 years after his purported death, to kill the seven children born on that fateful night. More info below!
Also from the article, Craven says, "It’s more a thriller than slasher film, and revolves around a young kid with a very dark past involving his family and his father."
Rogue starts production in April on "25/8," which will be produced by Iya Labunka.
