    Good stuff here. Stanley talks Color, the upcoming Moreau graphic novel and getting pissed on by a puma!

    Bit of an update...

    Director Richard Stanley still on track to make Color Out of Space with SpectreVision

    In non-film related Stanley news, he's currently on a crusade to try and prevent the corporatization of Montsegur. Here he is on Nightvision Radio talking about the planned siege: https://soundcloud.com/tonyaj-3/rich...on-nightvision

    Stanley was also co-writer on a new horror film starting Barbara Crampton, Replace. First Look: Barbara Crampton will make your skin crawl in horror-thriller Replace

    Jóhannsson died this past February, before he could collaborate with Stanley on the long-mooted The Colour Out of Space, which Waller says is getting very close to going before the cameras. “It’s moving along. We announced that we were going to be doing it, what, three years ago? Let’s just say that we’re getting a lot closer. Significantly closer. Like, it’s coming up, so I will be busy with Richard on set with that sometime in the near future.”

    When he is, he vows that SpectreVision will give Stanley the support he famously did not receive on the notoriously ill-fated The Island of Dr. Moreau. “He got a bad rep because of what happened on Moreau,” Waller says, “and to me, Moreau is nothing more than an example of bad producing. It’s not his fault, what happened there, and when you watch [David Gregory’s documentary] Lost Soul, you’re like, ‘You fucking assholes, throwing him under the bus!’ It was an opportunity for some experienced producers and studio execs to work with a gifted young filmmaker, and help cradle him into the next phase of his career—not to be like, ‘Huh, why does this little gifted indie filmmaker not know how to handle all this money and all this pressure?’ It’s like, ‘Well, of course he fuckin’ doesn’t know how to handle this shit. He’s never done this before.’ You’ve got to nurture, and it hurt him for many years. Not just in the public eye, but I think it hurt him; it instilled in him a bit of doubt that he didn’t have the vision he clearly has.

    “So part of our main goal with Colour will be to let him know that all producers aren’t dicks, and that some of us actually, 100 percent just want what’s best for him and the film. You don’t necessarily always align; sometimes filmmakers can get too focused on certain things to the point that they don’t know what’s best for the movie in the moment, and that’s when producers come into play. Good producers, where there’s a real strong sense of trust, where I can walk up to Adam or Panos and be like, ‘I love you, I think you’re amazing, I think you’re brilliant. This is a bad idea.’ [Laughs] You know what I mean? There’s a way of talking to artists that can be beneficial to them, where you can make the exact same point you’re trying to get across to them, and say it in a different tone. It’s like parenting, I would imagine; you can ask your child to do something politely and nicely, or you can yell at them and scold them, and then they just close off. Richard has been amazing, and I can’t wait to be on that set with him.”

    Hmm. Both Slashfilm and Bloody Disgusting had articles up earlier today saying Nicolas Cage was going to star in this but now those links no longer work.
    Rock! Shock! Pop!

    I have a hard time imagining Cage in any kind of Lovecraft adaptation and an even harder time imagining his and Stanley's interactions on set. I'm sure it'd be something, just not sure what kind of something, exactly. Whatever happened to that film Sion Sono was going to do with Cage, by the way?

    Lame.

    Nicolas Cage is the hypest shit and because he got involved with this project (and also Mandy) it got funding. He's anything but "lame." Dude has balls of titanium. You should be on your knees praising Nicolas Cage like he was Alice Cooper.

    Why? With Nic Cage involved this may actually get made, plus there's a chance we could see it in theaters.

    I actually like it when stars get involved with little weird projects. There's no way we would've seen MANDY at the theater if Cage wasn't the star.

    I'm cautiously optimistic as well. At the very least, Stanley will finally get to make that third feature film.
