Hack/Slash Gets a New Screenwriter
11.18.09 by Ryan
The movie adaptation of the comic book Hack/Slash is getting one step closer to realization. Bloody-Disgusting reports that Rogue Pictures has signed screenwriter Stephen Susco (The Grudge, the upcoming The Butcherhouse Chronicles) to write the script.
Hack/Slash is a twist on the slasher movie genre. Created by writer Tim Seeley, the comic's heroine, Cassie Hack, is a horror victim survivor who decides to hunt down other slashers with her brooding and mysterious partner Vlad. Kat Dennings (Nick & Norah's Infinite Playlist, the upcoming Defendor) has expressed interest in the role, though no casting decisions have been made.
Production on Hack/Slash was set to begin early next year, but with the addition of a new screenwriter, that start date may be pushed back. Swedish music video director Fredrik Bond has also taken over the directing duties from Todd Lincoln.
