Masters of Horror & Lionsgatethegoldensimatar
Yes friends, it is a match made in horror heaven. Mick Garris revealed on Fangoria Radio that the ground breaking show Masters of Horror is teaming up with horror friendly studio Lionsgate to co-finance the show after IDT/Starz departed. Lionsgate is currently courting networks right now as despite Masters good marks, Showtime apparently isn't interested in coming back for a third season.
Garris is also apparently going around and looking at genre vets as well as young turks to make up the rooster for Season 3. Lets all cross our fingers and hope that George A. Romero and Clive Barker get to make one. Garris also revealed that teaming up with a studio like Lionsgate might open the doors for feature film Masters ala Tales From The Crypt: Demon Knight (directed by Master Ernest Dickerson, his S2 episode is The V Word):
“I always envisioned doing a series of MASTERS OF HORROR movies,” Garris said, “but not as anthology films. We’d do it like the TALES FROM THE CRYPT features DEMON KNIGHT and BORDELLO OF BLOOD.”
So, lets all keep our fingers crossed and hopefully the Masters can return in good time...and keep them extra crossed for Romero & Barker.
