Vicious Brothers To Direct New Horror Project
The Vicious Brothers, also known as Colin Minihan and Stuart Ortiz, are directing Temple – a horror film based on a script by Simon Barrett.
According to The Hollywood Reporter the film is set to shoot in Japan this year.
To tie in with the movie, EiJi Otsuka is writing a book of ghost stories associated with real temples in Japan. One of the chapters will apparently focus on the movie’s fictional temple. Also, Toei Animation will serve up an anime series, comprising of 15 parts, based on Otsuka’s book.
Toei is also financing the project, which is being produced by Hooked Digital Media’s Neal Edelstein, Hemisphere Motion Picture Partners’ Shinya Egawa, Mike Macari and Eric Bassett of Absurda.
The Vicious Brothers’ previous offerings include Grave Encounters, in which a reality TV crew lock themselves inside a haunted former psychiatric facility in hopes of shooting supernatural occurrences, and Extraterrestrial – a story about a group of friends who become terrorised by aliens.
