It was announced at the AFM that our friend and staff writer Tim Sullivan will direct 2 sequels to 2001 MANIACS, 2001 MANIACS: BEVERLY HELLBILLYS and 2001 MANIACS: THE HILLBILLYS HAVE EYES. Both films are being financed by Los Angeles-based Social Capital Films and Tax Credit Finances of Rhode Island with IM Global Home Entertainment covering worldwide DVD distribution on both sequels.
The first 2001 MANIACS was directed by Tim Sullivan from a screenplay he co-wrote with Chris Kobin (based on Herschell Gordon Lewis’s movie TWO THOUSAND MANIACS) and starred Robert Englund, Lin Shaye, Giuseppe Andrews, Christa Campbell, Wendy Kremer, Mushond Lee, Jay Gillespie and Bianca Smith. Englund, Shaye and Campbell are expected to return. We’ll keep you posted when we hear more. (Congrats, Tim!)
