Well a week ago or maybe it was a bit longer, I can’t remember, the old noggin ain’t what it used to be, a story landed online regarding a sequel to Trent Haaga’s indie offering Deadgirl. The film followed two boys who discover a stripped naked dead girl in an abandoned mental asylum, I’m sure you guys are familiar with this film.
Anyway there was some story circulating online about a sequel to Deadgirl, only this time it was said, that two girls find a dead man’s body. Well Haaga has gone to his blog to clarify just what exactly is going on.
“Anyone who reads this blog knows that I wrote the DEADGIRL 2 script almost a year ago. And although I did write the script in response to some of the accusations of misogyny in the first, it’s NOT about girls finding a dead boy …
… Regardless, if there ever is a DEADGIRL 2, I won’t end up being involved in it (although I suspect that some elements that I introduced may end up getting stolen – if that happens, things will end up getting messy and full of lawyers and I don’t look forward to that) … I don’t want to go into detail here, but there’s been a creative schism in the DEADGIRL partnership and only one of us has the rights to the words DEADGIRL 2 … and since I’m only the writer and the guy who dreamt up the whole thing to begin with, you KNOW that person isn’t me. Personally, at this point, I’d like to see DEADGIRL 2 NEVER happen … I’d prefer to keep the first one the classic it is and move on with my career.”
What do you guys think?
