One of the more interesting indie flicks we’ve seen in the past few years was definitely writer/director Justin Paul Ritter’s KATIEBIRD: CERTIFIABLE CRAZY PERSON. The filmmaker recently checked in with FANGORIA about 2 new projects he’s working on, the first – A GOTHIC TALE featuring Rowdy Roddy Piper! (The 2nd one is titled LITTLE F**KER!?) You can find a few quick quotes about each new project, but get the whole scoop and first image at the original FANGO article HERE. Read on for more!
About his latest A GOTHIC TALE, Ritter tells FANGO, "It was originally inspired by three classic short stories: Edgar Allan Poe’s ‘The Tell-Tale Heart,’ Nathaniel Hawthorne’s ‘Dr. Heidegger’s Experiment’ and Robert Louis Stevenson’s ‘Markheim.’ When I first wrote A GOTHIC TALE in 1998, it had three completely different ‘chapters,’ each based on one of those tales. But when we set about actually making the movie all these years later, I found myself drawn more and more to the idea of weaving the characters’ lives together into one much bigger story."
What about that other flick with the bitchin’ title? "I’m now producing LITTLE F**KER, a stoner-comedy/monster flick, and I was able to convince my friend Michael Muscal to direct."
