Vincenzo Natali Reveals Concept Art from Numerous Dead Projects

June 1, 2015

Predator Concept Art

Let's take a look at some of the projects Vincenzo Natali has been working on. The filmmaker recently took to Twitter to share some of the concept art, and even pages of a script, for various projects that are now dead - or have progressed into different iterations. One of them is his Neuromancer movie, based on William Gibson's book, which Vincenzo had been attached to for years. Only a few weeks ago it was reported the film had financing to move forward, but without him. He also posted some pitch art (where a director creates art to show what their version of a movie would look/feel like) for a Predator movie and his take on Stephen King's It adaptation. The It movie also hit a snag, with the director leaving that, too. View below.

Here's a look at some of the unique concept art for Natali's Neuromancer movie that just fell apart:

Up next, he posts some shots from his pitch for a Predator movie (remake?) that never moved forward:

Here's another pitch collection for his version of the evil clown It movie based on Stephen King's book:

And finally, Vincenzo also posted the first four pages from his "aborted" Swamp Thing script from 2010:

For more from Vincenzo, follow him on Twitter @Vincenzo_Natali. When he first started the account, his first tweet (including a shot of the Dren character from his movie Splice) was: "Dren and I are beginning our shameless self-promotion." We expect him to continue posting more updates, information, cool photos and artwork, so follow along for the latest directly from him. It's always interesting to see this kind of art for these projects that are no longer happening, because it's a very rare unfiltered inside look at the filmmaking process. Most of the time we only see the behind-the-scenes stuff a whole year later when a movie hits DVD, but here he lets us in on an early sneak peek. I still would've loved to see Natali's Neuromancer movie made.

He made one of the worst films I've ever seen - Splice - so there's that.

They shouldn't horrorize the it clown! The strength was in the fact it was just a clown, but the evil was already there.
