Joe Dante – Paris, I’ll Kill You
For once, it’s not the usual calvalcade of slasher remakes as Gremlins’ Joe Dante will be helming a team that looks like the horror Justice League in order to make Paris, I’ll Kill You.
In addition to Dante’s directing prowess, he’ll be collaborating with [Rec]’s Paco Plaza, Splice’s Vincenzo Natali, The Midnight Meat Train’s Ryuhei Kitamura, Triangle’s Christopher Smith, A L’Interieur’s co-directing team Julien Maury and Alexandre Bustillo, and uh…Xavier Gens, who made Hitman (clearly the team’s Ma’ti).
Giving the long list of creative talent here, it’s no surprise that the film will be split into several short stories, each depicting a different dark facet of the most romantic city in the world. As it’s still at early stage, there are no plot details to reveal. It’s still looking for financing which the producers are hoping to pick up once its pitched to buyers at next week’s American Film Market.
