Adam Green Talks Hatchet III

Chris Savage

Adam Green is one busy director, I’m surprised he found the time to update his blog, but thankfully he did. As Green has opened up about such projects as, Chillerama, a third sequel to Hatchet, Hatchet III a big studio horror/comedy, Killer Pizza and the first news of a brand new documentary. Check out some excerpts below and then head on over to Green’s blog.

Upcoming anthology Chillerama;

“CHILLERAMA is going to come at you fast and furious which makes me so happy I can’t even express it.  Festivals and special theatrical screenings/events will be quickly followed by the On-Demand premiere and DVD, so you won’t have to wait long for it at all.  However, this movie was made to be the ultimate midnight drive-in movie.  It’s a ridiculous good time and it is meant to be seen with a rowdy crowd… so if you have the chance to see it theatrically (especially in a drive-in or other outdoor environment) – DO IT.”

Upcoming horror/comedy Killer Pizza;

“This is a big studio movie so unfortunately it isn’t like one of my independent productions where I can decide for myself how much information to spill and when I can spill it.  Here’s what I can say without overstepping my boundaries, the producers are in the process  of closing their deal with the major studio they intend to make the movie with.  Once that happens perhaps they’ll announce the news.

…a big question has been “Are you directing KILLER PIZZA?”  My answer right now… “I don’t know.”  I would love to if given the chance and it has certainly been discussed- but let’s see how it all plays out.”

Hatchet III;

“What’s the plot?  Who’s in it?  If you’re not directing it- who is?”  Too soon to reveal that stuff even if I already have some of the answers.  Point is, the soonest it’s going to start shooting would be early 2012- which is actually not that far away now.  Right now the major players in the HATCHET universe are all occupied with other projects, especially myself.  There is a collective heart and tight knit family behind HATCHET and we’re not going to create the next chapter until we’re all available and ready to play.  Thankfully, our partner and distributor Dark Sky Films totally gets that and feels the same way about doing it right as opposed to just doing it fast.”

His upcoming documentary;

“Alex Pardee and I are working together on a documentary about “monster art” that we’ve already begun production on.  We’ve been referring to the project as DIGGING UP THE MARROW- but don’t expect too many other details on it for awhile.  It’s a documentary so production is going to be spread out over a long time- but if you love genre based art and have often wondered what kind of reality an artist’s fantastical creature design comes from, I think you’ll find this project fascinating.”

Also Green has another project which he has apparently been working on for years;

“In a few more weeks I’ll be able to spill the beans on something else I’ve been working on for years and years and years that finally started to come to fruition a few months ago.  A project I have been working on all day and all night obsessively writing since March.  For me it’s actually the most important of all of my “children” as it is the project I’ve been tied to and working on the longest and therefore the one closest to my heart.  I just need some legal i’s to be dotted and some contractual t’s to be crossed and then all will be revealed. My only hint is that it is something that is going to bring me back to my original comedy roots… but I’m also bringing the horror with me.”
