Marshall heads West

03.10.2008
While he's about to take us to a particularly nasty-looking future in the impending DOOMSDAY, director Neil Marshall plans to go in the opposite direction for his next project.

Marshall will commit SACRILEGE, a horror flick set in the Old West. Like the looming DOOMSDAY, the new project is set up with genre label Rogue Pictures, and Marshall will write and direct it himself.

Details on the story are slim, but Marshall says it's "UNFORGIVEN by way of H.P. Lovecraft", it will be set during the Gold Rush, and it will have the isolated and paranoid tone of Carpenter's THE THING. Gunslingers and tentacles at high noon, then.

I guess this means the back burner again for EAGLE'S NEST, his long-gestating WWII action flick about a castle groundskeeper battling Nazi paratroopers in Scotland. Bummer. But after DOG SOLDIERS and THE DESCENT, I'm more than happy he's sticking with horror, too...
Extra Tidbit: Marshall's wife Axelle is a UK horror columnist for IGN.
