Anything Henry Rollins is involved with immediately gets my attention. That's why I'm really curious to check out the indie horror-comedy HE NEVER DIED, the Jason Krawczyk-helmed flick that we've been keeping tabs on ever since first hearing about it. It's been several months since we last heard any word on the project (with our last reports coming in the form of stills featuring Rollins), and now we've learned that the story of Rollins' immortal, bloodthirsty character from the film is expanding to a miniseries.

Variety is reporting that Rollins is attached to star in a miniseries spinoff of the recently completed indie horror-comedy feature HE NEVER DIED, with Toronto-based 108 Media shopping the miniseries earlier this month at Mipcom with plans to bring it to the American Film Market in Santa Monica next month. HE NEVER DIED writer-director Jason Krawczyk, producer Zach Hagen of Alternate Ending Studio and producers David Miller and Adrienne Stern are also attached to the series.

While we still don't know when the film itself will finally see a release, we do have the synopsis which sounds like it could be a bloody and wickedly disturbing good time. Check it out.

“He Never Died follows Jack in his battle with cannibalism and mental sobriety. An exceptionally prolonged life has brought depression and detachment. Jack buys stolen blood from a hospital intern, plays bingo, sleeps fourteen hours a day, watches television six hours a day, and lives alone. This is his life – he has shelled himself away from social interactions. The fuse is lit when Jack’s past comes back to rattle him. Jack must now walk a tight rope of sobriety and try to eat as few people as possible in this violent tale of personal responsibility and self worth. As it turns out, there are very few reasons to live when you can’t die.”

Hopefully we'll be hearing more about HE NEVER DIED and the spinoff miniseries soon. We'll keep an ear to the ground and keep ya informed.
