Conan Director Marcus Nispel to direct Horror-Action Movie "Hack/Slash"

2 min read

The director of the underwhelming reboot of Conan The Barbarian, is set to helm a feature based on the cult comic, which has been stuck in development hell for several years now.The comic, created by  Tim Seeley and Stefano Caselli, tells the story  of Cassie Hack, a girl who hunts down and kills serial killers, despite being the daughter of one herself, and who is also joined in her crusade by a strange, misshaped bodyguard by the name of Vlad who wears a gas mask to disguise his deformities.CHEAP UGGS OUTLET

Ranging from run of the mill pyschopaths to more twisted and brutal supernatural killers, the comic took the idea of the lone horror movie survivor and reinvented it, appealing to a more cynical demographic.

Having inherited the project from the now defunct Universal Studio sub-division, Rogue Pictures, Relativity Studios is on board to produce the film.

While Conan may not have been the success that Nispel envisioned it to be, on a level that made many a long-time fan lament in anguish, Hack/Slash seems more suited to the director.

Having worked behind the camera previously on the more well-received remakes of the Texas Chainsaw Massacre and Friday the 13th, as well as the Native American versus Vikings epic, Pathfinder, Hack/Slash looks like a dream match-up for the unique comic and the future director.CHEAP UGGS ONLINE

Something wrong gentlemen? You come here prepared to read the words of a madman, and instead found a lunatic obsessed with comics, Batman and Raul Julia’s M Bison performance in the 1994 Street Fighter movie? Fine! Keep your bio! In fact, now might be a good time to pray to it!

  • What an absolutely awful choice for director. For Conan. For Hack/ Slash. For anything, quite frankly.
    Perhaps his efforts on previous films were hindered by scripts that were bad to begin with but then, Nispel hardly seems like a director who has any understanding of the story contained in a script.

    Cool.  Having been hoping that they would make a film about this one.  It will be like a super sexy version of Supernatural.  Hot girl in short skirt fighting things that go bump in the night.  

    Don’t think the director is that a horrible choice.  Not like they chose Uwe Boll or something.  Have not watched all of his films, but those I have (Texas Chainsaw and Pathfinder) were watchable and enjoyable.

    Wonder who the lead actress will be?
