John Landis

Though his dark comedy film Burke & Hare starring Simon Pegg and Andy Serkis didn't exactly land with pomp and circumstance, you can't deny the great work of director John Landis on great films like An American Werewolf in London, Animal House, Blues Brothers and more. Even though his work as of late has left something to be desired, when the man behind the Michael Jackson's music video Thriller says he's going to venture back into horror, it's time to listen. Bloody Disgusting talked to Landis who revealed he's writing a new monster movie with Alexandre Gavras son of legendary Greek filmmaker Costa-Govras.

Though he didn't reveal much, Landis said, "You know what? Actually, I'm writing one with Alexandre Gavras and we're shooting it within the next two years in Paris. Yeah, a little monster movie. It has no title [yet]…You're the first people to know about it." Apparently the film will have a mix of French and English and therefore the cast will also be a mix of French and English speaking actors. Of course, Landis couldn't say anything about the cast except, "We know who's gonna star in it, but this is all off the radar right now [so I can't tell you who they are]." Well, here's hoping the project doesn't stay under the radar too much longer so we can get some details and get another horror film from Landis sooner than later.
