Eli Roth & Se7en scribe Andrew Kevin Walker team up for Psycho Killer!

Nov. 2, 2010by: Jake Dee

Now here's a promising development...

Variety is reporting the team behind THE LAST EXORCISM - namely Eli Roth (above) and partners Eric Newman and Studio Canal - are reteaming for a sick sounding genre follow up called PSYCHO KILLER. Not only that, SE7EN and 8MM scribe Andrew Kevin Walker has been tapped to pen the script!

Gavin Polone will make his directorial debut with PSYCHO KILLER, doing so after a long history of producing genre fare (ZOMBIELAND, 8MM, STIR OF ECHOES, etc.). Studio Canal will finance and distribute the film, with Roth and Newman overseeing producorial duties.

PSYCHO KILLER follows a nameless, masked murderer who leaves a trail of victims across the U.S. In a chance encounter on the plains of Nebraska, he kills a highway patrolman. The only witness to the crime, the patrolman's young wife, a fellow officer, sets out to hunt the killer down, as the psycho killer plans his masterpiece: a mass murder which guarantees him a triumphant entry into hell.

According to Polone, the first fifth of the film centers on the serial killer. The film then follows the paths of psycho and officer until they ultimately converge.

Alright, let's chop this one up. First off, how do we feel about the films premise? Sounds decent enough, right? Okay, what about Kevin Walker and Roth joining forces...will a first time director be less of an issue with those two onboard?

What do we think?

Extra Tidbit: Andrew Kevin Walker's last screen credit was 2009's THE WOLF MAN, starring Emily Blunt (above).

Walker's material is solid (including the Wolf Man which has too much studio fuckery involved). Roth, well the guy's got genuine passion and love for the genre, so I give that respect. I'd definitely love to hear more about this project.

Wow - Eli Roth and Andrew Kevin Walker; sorta like if the local retarded kid known for peeing in the pool and one of the best lifeguards in the world teamed up one summer day.
