Victor Miller, the writer-creator of Friday the 13th, along with the film and series’ co-creator Kerry Fleming, is now shopping for a network for the companion television series to their upcoming Rock Paper Dead.
Many details about the series are still being kept hush-hush, but we do know that Miller and Fleming have`a plan to bring in iconic horror film actors to appear in the series, in the form of cameos, guest spots or even recurring roles.
“The concept for the crossover is similar to what Marvel has done with their superhero films. What we will be doing is a first in the horror genre. The show is designed to work hand in hand with the film. The same core characters, with expanding supporting roles. Besides writing the film screenplay, Victor and I, created a blueprint for the characters with story arcs that can be sustained for multiple movies and seasons of the series.” Kerry continued explaining to me, “We have also reached out to many agents and managers of the biggest names in horror to gauge their interest in being part of this amazing project. Lately there has been talk about how some upcoming horror film is being likened to the “Expendables of Horror” (Death House). If that’s the case, then RPD will be the Marvel Universe of Horror.”
Rock Paper Dead revolves around a serial killer named Peter Harris, known as “The Doll Maker”. Peter has just been release from the state hospital for the criminally insane and returned to his ancestral home. Peter is fighting to keep it together, but everything changes when he meets Ashley.
We will post and update as more details are revealed.
