"Hack/Slash" is based on a comic that focuses on Cassie Hack, a young woman who symbolizes the lone girl who survives at the end of every horror movie. Hack not only survived but also got over her fear and travels to small towns across the country hunting homicidal maniacs and serial killers like Michael Myers and Jason Voorhees. She travels along with Vlad, a "hulking companion" who serves as her protector and often wears a gas mask.
Rogue Pictures bought the rights to make a film based on the comic a year ago and hasn't really moved forward on this until now. "Street Fighter: The Legend of Chun-Li" screenwriter Justin Marks had been hired to write the script (which is not a good thing at all) and now a director has been added to the film as well.
Rogue has hired first-time director Fredrik Bond to direct the movie. Bond's career so far has been directing commercials (and a short film) and this marks his feature debut. The film is officially set to start shooting sometime this winter with Bond at the helm.
The comic is overly gory, which will make the movie probably rated R, and has a tough, sexy female lead. Rumor was that Megan Fox was interested to play the role, but I just don't think she can act. I would prefer someone with not just good looks but decent acting to play the role.
