James Gunn Returns to Horror

Have you ever seen Slither? No? Ok stop what you are doing right now. If you must, leave work. Head to a store that sells movies and announce loudly that you need a copy of Slither or you may well die. It's just that serious. You begin your new life after your screening has ended.

There was much rejoicing when one of our favorite horror film directors took on the Guardians of the Galaxy, and further rejoicing as he continues his strong of amazing success, and still, it is bittersweet as all of Horror misses his hysterical take on dark times. Last year, Gunn blessed us with the Belko Experiment. Now, it seems, we get our fondest holiday wishes...

James Gunn has signed on to produce an untitled horror feature with The H Collective. Written by James' brother Brian and cousin Mark Gunn, James will produce the project in between writing the highly anticipated feature Guardians of the Galaxy Vol 3 and starting production. Gunn's longtime collaborator David Yarovesky will direct. Yarovesky directed the 2016 theatrical release The Hive.  His many music videos, including “Guardians Inferno” for Marvel Studios, have been viewed over 50 million times. The H Collective will fully finance the project and will produce alongside Gunn and his shingle, Troll Court Entertainment. Brian and Mark Gunn, Dan Clifton and The H Collective’s Nic Crawley will executive produce.

The Gunn family is no stranger to working together. James and Brian collaborated on the popular web parody series, “PG PORN”, which has garnered over 100 million hits, their brother Sean Gunn stars as Kraglin in the Guardians of the Galaxy franchise and has been in almost all of James' films and Brian and Mark work as a writing pair, having written Journey 2: The Mysterious Island. The trio is also writing and developing the new “Starsky & Hutch” series for Amazon.
