Hooper Craves Tequila over Dr. Pepperthegoldensimatar
Great news from the Master of Horror Tobe Hooper, he has his next film lined up and its aiming for a theaterical release! According to Shocktillyoudrop, the script is by Dan Madigan (See No Evil) and is currently titled Tequila Joe. And Hooper seems pretty excited about it:
"This is the best horror story I have heard in years...I have not been this passionate about a project since the first Chainsaw. What Dan created is the Mexican Freddy Kruger, real wild stuff.We are ready to go now!"
And in describing the titular character: "a tequila-swigging, meth-snorting, whore mongering, foul-mouthed, machete wielding murderous ghoul."
I admit this sounds pretty cool and I am excited to see what this could turn out to be. Hooper is one of my all time favorite horror directors and though people say his only good film was the original TCM, he's always hit the mark for me. And if this thing gets into theaters...that'd be one of the greatest things in the world.
I can see the posters now:

There is no word on release, studio or anything else. But, I'm hoping the best for Hooper. Good luck Mr. Hooper, show the music vid directors how its done.
And for those of you who didn't get the article title. Apparently Hooper has a love for Dr. Pepper and would drink a few cans a day on set. So...a silly play on that.
