I am pretty sure you guys are sick to death of all the Phantasm 5 rumors? I know I am. You may remember back in June when Dread Central reported that Phantasm 5 was expected to begin filming with a completed script in place, and well, that turned out to be bogus. So what about this time? Might there be some life left in Phantasm after-all?
Recently the guys over at B-D had the opportunity to speak with Phantasm creator, Don Coscarelli, and of course asked the looming question, what’s the deal with Phantasm 5?
Coscarelli explains; “There’s been a lot of speculation for a lot of time. When I made ‘Phantasm 4′ I really saw it as an end. And it really was an ending of that portion. But I will tell you that I get so many questions about ‘Phantasm 5′. And no one’s talking about remakes! They want a ‘Phantasm 5′ with the original actors. All of the actors are in great shape, Angus [Scrimm] does an excellent job in ‘John.’ And I used to just dismiss the idea of ‘Phantasm 5′, but now I have to take it a little more seriously. There is a rabid fan base that will not be denied! So once I get done with this publicity thing I have to find a way to satisfy that demand!”
I love the Phantasm movies, but I also know a lot of people that just don’t get them, but as a fan I would love more Phantasm, but at the same time I’m thinking, maybe we should just put this to bed once and for all. What do you guys think? Let us know below.
