Marina Antunes [Celluloid 11.20.12] horror

Director Lucky McKee made a bit of a splash a few years back with the release of May. Little was heard from the director until 2011 when he seemed to re-appear with The Woman, a movie which earned both praise and disinterest from our correspondents. The gap between the two pictures wasn't completely devoid of work, he did release what I consider his best film, the Brian Cox starring Red which he co-directed with Trygve Allister Diesen. There have always been a few years between his projects but it looks like the schedule of production is shifting because McKee has lined up his next project and for it, he's going back to the beginning.

McKee and Chris Sivertson of I Know Who Killed Me fame, are teaming up for All Cheerleaders Must Die, a re-working of their USC Film School graduation project.

Described as a supernatural thriller, it's the story of a 17 year old rebel named Maddy Killian who is on a mission to take down the captain of the football team.

She rallies a group of cheerleaders around her cause, but after a tragic turn of events the girls are thrust into a supernatural battle that culminates in a mayhem-filled night they will never forget.

Sounds like it could be fun, especially if it gets into the same sort of strange/horror category both filmmakers are known for. This sounds very promising. More to come as the project heads into development.
