Slash Talks Slasher Films

As we previous reported last week, Slash is getting into the movie biz. Gibson has more details: (Gibson) Slash has been talking about yet another new project; his Slasher Films horror movie production company. The guitar star's Slasher company has hired Sixth Sense star Haley Joel Osment to star in a new film called Wake the Dead who, according to Variety, will play Victor Franklin, a college student experimenting with reversing death. The film is based on a graphic novel by Steve Niles, best known for 30 Days of Night.

And Slash likes his horror flicks. "My favorite type of horror movies have always been the ones with layered performances and rich characters," Slash tells Dread Central. "Haley brings a wealth of experience to a character who is already wise beyond his years. I'm really looking forward to working with him."

Slash described Wake the Dead in a previous interview as "basically a modern, young Frankenstein story about a brilliant college student who's discovered how to animate dead tissue but he's a teenager so he goes overboard."

Slash's Slasher Films are also developing three other projects: a movie called Nothing to Fear, about a town that sits on the gateway to hell; Theorem, about a mathematician who discovers the equation for evil; and The Other Kingdom, about a hospital struck by a zombie plague. more on this story
