J.T. Petty Still Has His Sights Set on the Faces of Death

Chris Savage

Faces of DeathHere is one film that has been in development for years. In fact, we haven’t heard anything on the new Faces of Death film in something like four years, but today, the silence has been broken. The last we heard was that J.T. Petty was attached to give us his take on the infamous 1978 film the Faces of Death, and well, that still appears to be the case.

Recently the folks over at STYD, caught up with Petty, and revealed this;

I turned in a new draft of the script a month ago,” he told us.  “I’d love to make it, it would be the most horrific of the movies I’ve made so far.

So does this mean that the Faces of Death will be his next film? Who knows, but we do know that this one is still alive and he is still attached after all these years. My question is, do you guys want a new Faces of Death film?

        Okay. This has left me confused. ‘Faces of Death’ as in a compilation of real life death? If so; 1) How is this at all a film, and 2) Why would it require a script? Please explain…

          Faces of death was supposedly real life death when in reality some of the scenes were scripted and fake. Theres a hard to find interview floating around where the director admits that a couple were faked and suggests others may have been.

          Ah I see. I wasn’t aware some were faked, it makes sense now. Thanks for the explanation :)

        I met one of that guys relatives, I believe it was his daughter, years ago. They told me that it was all fake. Im not sure about the animal stuff but the humans all we’re, she said.

        Its so obviously faked I can never understand why there’s discussions on it.

        So they’re going to have a compilation of death scenes(all the nasty parts of say the Final Destination films)?
