There’s no question that James Gunn is an amazing filmmaker. Gunn’s Guardians of the Galaxy franchise proved that to the world. Now, Gunn is gearing up to return to his horror roots as a producer for a still unnamed genre film written by Gunn’s brother Brian and his cousin Mark Gunn, the writing duo behind Journey 2: The Mysterious Island.
The film will be directed by Gunn’s longtime collaborator David Yarovesky, the man behind the stomach-churning 2015 film The Hive which had some viewers fainting and puking.
Financed by The H Collective who will produce, the film will see Gunn produce under his Troll Court Entertainment banner. Nic Crawley of The H Collective will serve as executive producer.
At the moment the plot and cast for the untitled project is being kept under wraps, but we do know that it is aiming to start production in spring of 2018.
While the world recognizes James Gunn as the man behind Guardian of the Galaxy 1 and 2, horror fans have known about his talent for years, delivering films like 1996’s Tromeo and Juliet, Dawn of the Dead (2004), Slither, and last years’ The Belko Experiment. He’s also been attached in one or another to other great films and series such as Thir13en Ghosts and ‘Holliston’.
