Neil Marshall set the horror world alight with his first two feature length movies, Dog Soldiers and The Descent. However his move into the mainstream hasn’t gone as well, with Doomsday and Centurion both failing to excite audiences.
Now it appears he’s plotting his next flick, as Deadline reports he’s in early talks to helm the slasher flick Hellfest. If all the deal work out, he’ll be shooting the movie next summer.
The script, by William Penick and Chris Sey, is about a costumed killer who systematically slaughters the unsuspecting visitors who come to a theme park on Halloween night. It’s a pretty generic set-up, but if Marshall can get back to the simplicity that made his first two movies so successful, it could work fine.
