Having finally let go of the beyond-cursed remake of The Crow, Corin Hardy has found his next project, and it sounds like a huge amount of fun.
Deadline reports that Hardy will follow his debut creature feature The Hallow with Hell Bent, which is apparently “easiest described as ‘Dirty Dozen Goes To Hell.’” You have our attention, Mr Hardy.
The script by Mike Finch is apparently a huge priority for Paramount and they’re looking to cast the ensemble movie as soon as possible, although the script is apparently getting a polish before anything else happens.
“In Hell Bent, a group of mercenaries imprisoned in a Brazilian jail are murdered and led into the depths of hell by a priest who wishes to use their skills to kill Satan before he brings hell to Earth.”
Admittedly, that synopsis sounds like it could belong to any number of DTV horror movies, but with a director like Hardy at the helm and with the backing that the studio is reportedly giving it, this could be highly entertaining. The Hallow was an inventive and beautifully made horror and we’d love to see what else Hardy has got up his sleeve. And given how torturous the whole saga with The Crow remake has been, he deserves to have some fun.
And, to be honest, we were sold on “Dirty Dozen Goes To Hell.”
