Who here is excited for what could be the ultimate anthology flick, The ABC’s of Death? I know I’m pretty buzzing about the whole prospect and courtesy of Entertainment Weekly we have the official poster, check it out below.
Synopsis: “Twenty-five directors are being invited to participate from all corners of the world. The 26th Director will be found during a worldwide search. Details soon on the Official Site.
Established directors and some of the most gifted emerging directors will make up the diverse roster of creative talent that will showcase twenty-six tales of mortality, beginning with the letter A and ending with the letter Z.
This will be a celebration of death in all its forms. From the shocking and exotic through to the banal and droll. The spectrum of cause will run from the accidental through to murder most foul. It is up to each director to interpret the letter (word) they are assigned.
They have 6 months, 6 weeks and 6 days to finish their short tale on death.”
