The REPO! And 11-11-11 director has updated genre fans on the state (or lack there of) of his reimagining of MOTHER’S DAY.
Speaking to Shock Till You Drop (who also premiered a clip), who contacted the filmmaker about the seeming disappearance of the film from its intended April 1 release, he said:
“At one point we were releasing on April 1, then the weekend became over run with other genre flicks. I think the distributor wanted a quieter weekend. At this point I am only speculating, as I am not involved at all regarding the release… With SAW, or REPO! THE GENETIC OPERA, I was working with a company I had a strong relationship with as I had done numerous films with them. Lionsgate always kept me in the loop so I always knew where we were. This is not the case unfortunately this time out. For the most part, I get information the same time you do. When I wake up, I scour the genre sites seeing what, if any information has been released.”
However, Bousman insists the film will still hit theaters saying, “I e-mailed back and forth over the weekend with one of peeps at the distribution company. They assured me again it is coming out in theaters here, it is not a DVD release. As for a date, that I can’t give you. I know their plan is soon—as in second quarter of this year. Hopefully my obsessive e-mailing wears them out and they announce one soon.”
Meanwhile, Bousman is finishing up 11-11-11, a film that really needs to hit its specific release and sees a supernatural phenomenon take place on the titular date.
