Rogue Pictures Hires a Director for the Hack/Slash Movie

You might remember reading, more than a year ago, that Rogue Pictures was adapting the comic book series Hack/Slash. Street Fighter screenwriter Justin Marks had been hired to write the script, which it turns out probably wasn't the best idea. However, Rogue is still pushing forward and 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. Several other directors, including newcomer Todd Lincoln, have been attached, but it looks like it's officially set to start shooting sometime this winter with Bond at the helm.
Hack/Slash 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, she has become a killer of killers 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. It's a very sexy series and I would imagine Rogue is pursuing Megan Fox, but considering she just did Jennifer's Body, she'll probably skip this. That said, I will be very curious to see who they do cast to play Cassie, as she better be beautiful!
