Deodato Talks CANNIBAL HOLOCAUST Sequel CANNIBALS! Bava On DEMONS Remake?!
This past weekend, Ruggero Deodato (CANNIBAL HOLOCAUST), Lamberto Bava (DEMONS 1-2) and Sergio Stivaletti took part in the first ever "Masters Of Italian Horror" panel at the Fangoria Weekend Of Horrors in Secaucus, NJ. During the discussion, Deodato was asked about the status of his proposed CANNIBAL HOLOCAUST sequel simply titled CANNIBALS (or as Deodato referred to it "CANNIBAL METROPOLITAN"). (See original post HERE!) He told the Fango audience that the script was complete and that shooting was scheduled to begin in September of this year. However, he confessed to us that the producer wanted him to change one thing from the script, and Deodato doesn’t want to compromise. So, shooting won’t begin until he can resolve this one discrepancy with the producer of CANNIBALS. He joked, "Hopefully… I win!"
Meanwhile, an audience member asked Lamberto Bava if anyone’s asked him about remaking DEMONS yet. Bava replied that he’s "sick of remake-mania" and that while no one has brought up a remake to DEMONS, if they ever did, he would NOT want to be a part of it.
