Christopher Smith, Joe Dante join Paris I'll Kill You
UK director Christopher Smith (Creep), Gremlins director Joe Dante and REC director Paco Plaza are among the directors who have signed up for horror portmanteau feature Paris I’ll Kill You.
The film, which is due to go into production in spring/summer 2011, will feature ten story segments which promise to delve into the underbelly of Paris.
Also signed up to direct are Vincenzo Natali (Splice), Xavier Gens (Hitman), Ryuhei Kitamura (The Midnight Meat Train), French duo Julien Maury and Alexandre Bustillo, and German music video director Joern Heitmann.
Darryn Welch and Mathieu Robinet will produce the feature, with Chris Ouwinga executive producing along with Oliver Simon, Daniel Baur and Carl Clifton of K5 Film.
K5 has picked up international sales rights and will be tempting buyers at the upcoming American Film Market next week.
The producers are also billing the project as a potential franchise. “Today Paris, tomorrow New York, Moscow, London,” said K5’s Carl Clifton.
