To say progress on The I Scream Man has been an uphill crawl is an understatement. Things are looking positive, however, for the horror film we detailed in 2007 here.
Director J.T. Mollner confirmed a bit of news that floated our way over the weekend. John Schneider and Christopher Eberts (Lucky Number Slevin, Stag Night) are on board as producers. "I am locked as director," says Mollner. "Mikos Zavros will be acting in it, and the two of us will be fine tuning the script. Either way, I Scream Man is still alive."
There have been a slight casting adjustment. Schneider is now set to play the heroine's father, a roll that once went to Fred Ward. Crispin Glover and Dee Wallace, who have been on since the beginning, are still locked in. Glover is playing the titular role.
Here's a synopsis: A small, sleepy town has its share of secrets. In Hooper, Wyoming, the children have their own dark secret. When a psychologically bruised street vendor rolls into town using sweets as a facade for his vicious intentions, it means death is near for the guilty.
He has come for a reason. He won't leave until he has cleansed Hooper of its depravity; until he has exterminated the ones who deserve it. Lynda Stichin and Bobby Mills are living their slow-paced lives in this peaceful, isolated, and seemingly innocent slice of rural Americana. Soon, one innocent child's slip of the tongue will draw them into the cyclical trap of the churn, bringing them painfully close to the sharp, blood-drenched blades of the grizzly truth. Some questions are better left unanswered. The cycle of violence continues.
