Hack/Slash movie boarded by TCM/F13 helmer Marcus Nispel

Jan. 13, 2012by: Eric Walkuski

The long-delayed film adaptation of HACK/SLASH has found its latest director: Marcus Nispel.

Nispel, of FRIDAY THE 13th, TEXAS CHAINSAW MASSACRE and CONAN THE BARBARIAN fame, has climbed aboard the Relativity Media project, which has been in development for several years.

Todd Lincoln (THE APPARITION) and commercial director Fredrik Bond have both been attached to HACK/SLASH at different times, Lincoln as far back as 2006. Obviously, neither worked out, so Relativity will have to hope against hope that Nispel's vision drives the flick into a greenlight. Alexandra Milchan, Adrian Askarieh and Daniel Alter are producing.

HACK/SLASH tells the ongoing adventures of Cassie Hack (daughter of the evil slasher known as The Lunch Lady), who rejected her mother's murderous ways and instead devoted her life to hunting down slashers with her partner Vlad.


Megan Fox was once said to be interested in portraying Cassie Hack

Extra Tidbit: Do you think Marcus Nispel is the man for HACK/SLASH? (If not, feel free to make "Hack to direct Hack/Slash" jokes at will.)

BTZombie88 is right to say Nispel's previous horror films were not bad just because they were remakes. They were entirely mediocre in their own right. But while I actually enjoyed Conan, I couldn't ignore the fact that (as with Friday 13th) it was inferior to an original film made 20+ years earlier. I can't forgive the TCM remake because not only did it lack everything that was good about the original; it completely missed the point of it. I'll reserve judgement on how he handles Hack/Slash,

I've never read the comics, but the story sounds cool and I like Marcus Nispel as a director. He has a good style, and it's not like his previous horror films were bad just because they were remakes.

I hate Nispel's style as well as every film he has directed to-date. Hopefully we can get a better director for this comic.
