NEIL MARSHALL May Direct HELLFEST

According to Deadline, Neil Marshall (Dog Soldiers, The Descent) is in early negotiations to direct Hellfest, a horror project from CBS Films, which will follow a costumed killer who murders unsuspecting visitors of a theme park on Halloween night.

Hellfest was written by William Penick and Chris Sey and is being produced by Gale Anne Hurd (The Terminator, The Incredible Hulk, Armageddon) through her Valhalla Entertainment (AMC’s The Walking Dead) company.

If Marshall accepts the offer, this will be his next job and production will begin by next summer with a hope to launch a new horror franchise with the project.


Marshall’s most recent directorial effort was Centurion, starring Michael Fassbender (Shame, X-Men: First Class, Hunger) and Dominic West (HBO’s The Wire, Johnny English reborn, the upcoming John Carter).

His first film, Dog Soldiers was a low-budget werewolf film that gained high praise and launched his career. He followed Soldiers up with The Descent which garnered even more acclaim amongst horror enthusiasts and critics alike. He then jumped to a bigger budget with his ode to Mad Max, Doomsday. While the film didn’t do well critically or commercially, I think it’s such a bat-shit crazy genre film, it’s hard not to kinda love it.

Marshall is currently in post-production on Blackwater, which will be the second episode of season two of HBO’s Game of Thrones.
