Bousman To Helm 3D Horror Pic “NINETY”
Darren Bousman, (SAW II, SAW III, SAW IV, and the upcoming MOTHER’S DAY) will direct a script by Scott Milam (MOTHER’S DAY) this summer for Christopher Mallick’s Oxymoron Entertainment (MIDDLE MEN (Paramount), in theatres August 6th and the upcoming COLUMBUS CIRCLE) entitled NINETY. Mallick has once again teamed with Blue Star Entertainment’s William Sherak and Jason Shuman (DARKNESS FALLS and THE MESSENGERS) to produce the 3D film.
VERNIE JAMES is a psychotic killer. After an elaborate escape from authorities, Vernie aspires to amass a body count of ninety, which would break the record of any infamous killer before him. Ninety victims on his cross‐country journey to kill the daughter of his nemesis ‐ DETECTIVE BILL DENTON. Denton is a rogue cop and the only one who has ever caught Vernie. Now, Denton must stop him before he completes the gruesome and graphic bloodletting.
Oxymoron’s Mallick commented, “I continue to be fortunate to have the opportunity to work with very talented and gifted individuals. I am a big fan of both Darren and Scott’s work and look forward to making a great film with them this summer. NINETY is going to be an amazing ride, especially in 3D.”
Blue Star’s Shuman commented, “This is an insane, off the chart script that has some of the most original moments I have seen in the horror world in quite some time. Under Darren’s direction, we have no doubt this is an exciting new franchise for all genre fans and we intend to fully utilize the new 3D technology.”
Bousman commented, “This is a very exciting project for me and like always, I plan to push the envelope further than before and make a killer movie that will have people terrified.”
Milam commented, “I’m pretty stoked to be making my second feature with Darren. He gets this type of film better than anyone I know. It’s going to be a sick, twisted, fun, thrill‐ride.””
The film will be shot in 2D and converted into 3D. Filming is set to begin this summer, 2010 in New Mexico.
