Ahoy, squirts! Quint here with a press release I was sent today announcing a new horror film called 2GETHER 4EVER. Lotsa weird names associated with this thing... first off Lions Gate is distributing this movie in the US. Add on to that the writer of BLOOD FEAST 2, one of the goofiest gore flicks ever made, executive producer Clive Barker, producers Jacky Lee Morgan (WAITING, BULLY) and Harold Jay Knowles. Wait... what was that last one? Oh, shit... here we go again!
My thoughts? Well, the press release below says that Morgan and W. Boyd Ford are going to be doing this movie as a real horror movie, not the cheapo cheesefest that was BLOOD FEAST 2. Clive Barker putting his name on it tends to give me reason to believe the press release. Included was a poster used at this year's American Film Market to sell the foreign rights for the film...
My knee-jerk is they have to change that title. TOGETHER FOREVER, please. 2GETHER 4EVER sounds like a direct to video hip hop romantic comedy. And the poster... love the design, but it needs more atmosphere and not look so much like it came out of a computer. But then again, it's just a poster whipped up to sell it to China and Egypt and Africa and shit. I'm sure when the time comes we'll get a much more professional one-sheet. Those are my thoughts. Both the press release and the AFM poster are below. Tell us yours. Enjoy!
Queso Grande Productions proudly announces it has joined with Seraphim Films and Aint It Cool Productions to produce 2gether 4ever later this year. Written by W. Boyd Ford (Blood Feast 2: All U Can Eat), the film will be produced by Harry Knowles of Aint-It-Cool-News.com, Jacky Lee Morgan (Waiting, Bully, Love Liza) of Queso Grande Productions and Joe Daley and Anthony DiBlasi of Seraphim. Clive Barker (Hellraiser, Nightbreed) will executive produce. Lastly, Lions Gate Film will be handling the domestic distribution of 2gether 4ever.
New blood flows as Ford and Morgan join forces to direct the story of a teen girl and her relationship with high school, parents, a ghost and some ghastly goings-on. The duo previously teamed up on the campier side of horror to write and produce H. G. Lewis’s Blood Feast 2: All U Can Eat. With 2gether 4ever, Morgan and Ford turn their talents to exploring the darker side of the genre
Bestselling author Clive Barker has brought us numerous horrific projects including the iconic Hellraiser series. Seraphim Films is currently in pre production on Midnight Meat Train and post production on The Plague. Seraphim’s Midnight Picture Show will also be developing another sinister feature with Queso Grande entitled Scape-Goats based on the short story by Barker.
Knowles created Aint-It-Cool-News.com, long considered home to America’s cinephiles. Knowles is currently producing John Carter of Mars with Paramount Pictures and Ghost Town with Revolution Studios.
