It only takes one true-blue classic for the horror fans to embrace a filmmaker -- just ask Sean Cunningham -- but in the case of Mr. Stuart Gordon
, we have a solid handful of goodies to choose from. Yep, 1985's Re-Animator
is the guy's big hitter, obviously, but over the years Mr. G has turned out some fairly entertaining pieces of genre, most notably From Beyond
(1993) and Dagon
(2001). The Chicago-bred filmmaker recently gave William H. Macy
some great opportunities in a big-screen adaptation of David Mamet's Edmond
-- and now it looks like it's back to the horror scene for Stu.
Gordon's next film will be a thriller called Stuck
, and it's about the terror that pursues a woman after she stupidly bails from the scene of a nasty hit & run accident. The director will be co-writing Stuck
, which is reportedly based on actual events, with a guy named John Strysik
, who once wrote a truly awful horror flick called Deathbed
... for producer Stuart Gordon.
Stuck begins production in New Brunswick next week. We'll let you know if any cool casting news hits the 'net. And there's been no new word on Gordon's apparent involvement in House of Re-Animator
, but I have my fingers crossed.
