Paul W.S. Anderson the next to do a found footage project

11.29.2011

Paul W.S. Anderson has teamed up with Jeremy Bolt and Entertainment One to work on a new tv show called "The Reel".

The one-hour psychological thriller will be shot in the style of popular found footage films like THE BLAIR WITCH PROJECT and PARANORMAL ACTIVITY and feature a young documentarian [who] searches for evidence of the supernatural. His first case concerns the mysterious last days of two teenagers and a serial killer, known as the Mirror Mask Killer, who uses various forms of psychological torment to exact bloody vengeance on its victims. "The Reel" combines supernatural shocks in a case-per-week format that leads viewers through a season long mystery.

The thing that makes me laugh- how the hell could they keep interest if they're just looking at newly found footage every week? And just how many people out there are recording their demise?

Paul W.S. Anderson and Jeremy Bolt will executive produce, as they have for tons of other films like EVENT HORIZON and the upcoming RESIDENT EVIL: RETRIBUTION, which might be the fourth or the fifth in the series (I lost track and couldn't care to look it up.)

"When we read Adam's script we were genuinely disturbed by the story and fascinated by the idea of a found footage TV show," said Paul W.S. Anderson and Jeremy Bolt, apparently speaking at the same time like those creepy twins from THE SHINING. "We are very grateful to the innovative eOne team for turning the idea into a reality."

What's funny about this story is that none of the commenters have been positive so far, 0% liking on the article. Gotta love the hate for this guy. Almost at Uwe Boll level.

Strange couple, Anderson and Jovovich. I often wonder which one is keeping the other ones career alive. Probably goes both ways.

For a second, I mistook it for Paul Thomas Anderson doing a found footage project and I got immediately hyped, then I realized was the OTHER Paul Anderson.

The only found footage from him that I'd probably be interested in is a Milla Jovovich sex tape.

I wish someone would find some footage of this guy looking at child porn... that way he would go away for a long, long time.

This sounds ALOT like a Fox show from 2000 called "Freakylinks" It had to do with a guy and his collegues researching paranormal phenomena and videotaping it A'la found footage style, it was made by Haxan who also made "The Blair Witch Project" check out this link

It'll also star Milla Jovovich and have slow-motion action scenes.. he's gonna push the boundaries of found footage films because he's one of the greatest filmmakers to ever ex- ok this is a horrible idea, he's awful.
