'Hack/Slash' Movie News!

Posted by No_Name_ (17403 posts) - - Show Bio


Who doesn't love horror comics moving to the big screen? I know I sure think it's cool. Many of you may or may not be fans of the popular horror series Hack/Slash which is published by independent publishing company, Devil's Due. The comic revolves around a young girl, Cassie Hack, who hunts 'slashers,' or serial killers. Back in February G-Man had reported that the popular comic series would be seeing the big screen with actor Nick Principe playing the lead slasher.

According to a report by Firstshowing.net, Cassie may have finally taken the leaps that are required to hit the big screen. Rogue Pictures has chosen screenwriter Justin Marks (Street Fighter) to write the script, and first-time director Frederick Bond to direct the movie.

Bond's career so far has been directing commercials (and a short film) and this marks his feature debut. Several other directors, including newcomer Todd Lincoln, have been attached, but it looks like it's officially set to start shooting sometime this winter with Bond at the helm.

What could this mean for Hack/Slash? With a relatively unknown director, with little to no experience on large film projects combined with a screen writer who's last film did not receive many positive reviews, leaves me feeling a bit nervous. I feel as though with a solid creative team backing the product, Hack/Slash could be a successful horror film. Are you looking forward to the series making its  transition to the big screen?

This has the hallmarks of doom.

Hack/Slash is one of the few comics I think that could actually make for a damn good movie. I doubt any movie made using the name will be any good, though one can hope.

why don't they just have the writers of the series write a movie?

I'm a big fan of the Hack/Slash series it's one of my top 10 series that I read. So of course I've been looking forward to seeing a movie made for quite some time. But I don't think having Justin Marks to write the script is a wise move and I don't  know why they just don't get the writers of the series to do it. Though I appreciate Justin's enthusiasm for these movies he wants to do with He-Man & that Green Arrow movie Supermax, which I think they axed btw lol. Buuuut his last movie Street Fighter was just God awful ,

And I knoooow some people * cough* Babs .... lol dislike Megan Fox, but I think she would just be perfect for Cassie Hack. As I recall she was actually interested in playing the character.

Y'know, I could go for this. I agree with pixelized and babs, though. Bring Tim Seeley in to work with Justin Marks, at least. Please.


They might figure Justin Marks knows how to write in screenplay format, for the camera, and maybe he's actually very good, but Tim Seeley could certainly learn fast enough, and besides, he's a comic writer!! He's got that acquired skill built-in, and really well, too!!

So, does anyone know the time and location for the auditions?

Actually Megan Fox probably would make a good Cassie and maybe have Michael Clarke Duncan as Vlad, this movie could be fantastic if done right hopefully

@Emperor Gonzo Noir:
Yea Duncan is probably the best choice for Vlad.

Zombie wouldn't be bad the problem is his films always have this dirty look like no one knows how to bathe lol. But he did do a comic mini-series that was pretty badass called Nails. You should check it out you might like it I know I did.

Seriously. It's almost as bad as FOX allowing Chris Claremont to write the movie adaptations of the X-men movies, but not allowing him to get any closer after that. Oh and if you are wondering... yes, his adaptations were a hell of a lot better than the actual movies! At least let these guys write up screenplays and see how it turns out.
