Rise (and more)

If you nip over to Ghost House Pictures, you'll find the page for "Rise" a new film staring Lucy Liu that has - as far as I can tell - wrapped up production. The site has the following synopsis for the movie:

Rise is a supernatural thriller in which a reporter (Liu) wakes up in a morgue to discover she is no longer among the living. She vows revenge against the cult responsible for putting her there and hunts them down one by one. Chiklis plays "Rawlins," a haunted police detective whose daughter is killed by the same cult and seeks answers for her gruesome death.

In other news from the same production company, it has been announced that David Slade is to direct the Sam Rami and Rob Tapert production of "30 days of Night". The film is based on the wonderful graphic novel by Steve Niles - expect a review of the graphic novel here, soon.

Do you know anything about Slade? I've never heard of any of his work. I'm just glad to hear that the project is moving forward.

By the way, you might want to think about allowing anonymous and nonregistered comments. Currently you have to be a user of blogger to make a comment here, and although I have an account I do not use the service anymore. There are probably others who have wanted to comment but couldn't. Just a suggestion.

I don't know his work, but apparently he's made a couple of features and some music videos. Like you I'm just glad the project is finally moving.

Thanks for the suggestion er comments.
