This just has epic written all over it, here we have an upcoming horror anthology which consist’s of 25 horror directors plus one contest winner. Each director will be directing there own segment, so that’s twenty freaking six!
To make this project happen, Alamo Drafthouse, Timson Films and Magnet Releasing will be working together to produce The ABCs of Death.
So according to Variety each director will be assigned a letter of the alphabet which will represent a word they will use to create a short. In that, they need to interpret accidental deaths and murders commited in cold blood.
Production of the project is said to take place this June with a hopeful January 2012 completion. Which works out to be six months, six weeks and six days. The 26th director will be chosen from a worldwide competition but not much else is known about the competition at this time.
So far, the current list of director’s confirmed for this epic project are as follows; “Jason Eisener (“Hobo With a Shotgun”), Nacho Vigalondo (“TimeCrimes”), Ti West (“The House of the Devil”), Srdjan Spasojevic (“A Serbian Film”), Angela Bettis (“Roman”) and Ben Wheatley (“The Kill List”).”
