Big Burst & 30 Days of Night Sequel Updates

EXCL: Big Burst & 30 Days of Night Sequel Updates

This afternoon, I spent some time on the phone with producer Rob Tapert (Drag Me to Hell, Evil Dead series) and learned a bit about Ghost House Pictures' upcoming slate.

One project we were curious about in particular was Burst, written by Gary Dauberman. Set during a vicious winter storm, the story focuses on disparate group of folks holed up in a lodge. Soon some of them literally begin to burst in a messy explosion.

I had heard rumblings that momentum was building on this film's development; that Ghost House was aiming to shoot it in 3-D and would partner with Lionsgate to produce. When I hit up Tapert for confirmation, he offered this:

"[Burst] is something we're attempting to bring to the marketplace and there is a director we have danced with and we're trying to dot all of the i's and cross all of the t's. Some time in the next week or two you'll hear about the director you'll know and you'll say, 'Hmm, he could do a really cool version of it.'"
