While we wait with eager anticipation to check out the new horror anthology film Nightmare Cinema, which prolific horror director Joe Dante participated in, the director has revealed the project he hopes to work on next...
...I've long been a fan of Dante, who has given us films such as Gremlins and the greatest werewolf film of all time, The Howling (don't @ me), so it's always exciting to get an update on what we can expect to see next with the director behind the camera.
While speaking with EW, Dante discussed the upcoming horror film which he produced, Camp Cold Brook, which is directed by Andy Palmer and features horror queen Danielle Harris (Halloween 4). While talking about the film, Dante was also asked about his project The Man with Kaleidoscope Eyes, the true story of how the legendary Roger Corman (The Little Shop of Horrors) made his 1967 drug fever film, The Trip. Last we had heard of the film, Bill Hader was doing a script reading for it a couple years back.
Here's what Dante had to say about The Trip, via EW:
“I am still working on it...In fact, I have a meeting about it tomorrow. I’m still hoping. And so is Roger!”
If you look on Dante's IMDB page, The Man with Kaleidoscope Eyes is also listed in pre-production. It sounds to us like this could very well be Dante's next film, and as a huge fan of both Corman and Dante, this is a dream pairing that I can't wait to ingest, for better or worse.
The Trip is about:
"Paul Groves (Peter Fonda), a television commercial director, takes his first dose of LSD while experiencing the heartbreak and ambivalence of divorce from his beautiful but adulterous wife (Susan Strasberg)."
