House of Re-Animator delayed
From bloodydisgusting, While chatting with Director Stuart Gordon last week about his forthcoming hit-and-run thriller Stuck, SpookyDan discovered some disheartening news about the long-delayed RE-ANIMATOR sequels. Originally planned to be a brand new trilogy, it looks like the extension to the franchise won't be happening - or at least anytime soon. Read on for the skinny on House of Re-Animator, the adventure Herbert West won't be taking.
One of the most popular gore clicks of all-time is Stuart Gordon's RE-ANIMATOR, which has swamped numerous sequels. The next film on the slate was HOUSE OF RE-ANIMATOR, which would have pit Herbert West against the President of the United States. Gordon explains that the more he thought about the idea, the more it seemed a little dated.
“I wish I had good news on that but it doesn’t look like its going to happen," Gordon tells Bloody-Disgusting. "It’s Funny, I have been having second thoughts lately because I keep reading about Oliver Stone doing this movie about George W Bush, I kept thinking that its sort of old news if we do a movie about the Bush administration, by the time it comes out we will have a new president, and at that point, who cares? But maybe people are still intrigued at the bush administrations; its so audacious, maybe they will still be interested."
