We ran a chat with director Joe Lynch (pictured) yesterday about CHILLERAMA (out today on DVD and Blu-ray from Image Entertainment) and
his upcoming KNIGHTS OF BADASSDOM, and today we have some words on his next
feature, an unusual action-thriller called EVERLY.
Set to begin production early next year, EVERLY is “unlike
anything I’ve ever done before,” Lynch tells Fango. “It’s like ‘DIE HARD in a
room,’ and it’s really exciting. The best way to describe the plot is: One
woman, 100 yakuza, 10,000 bullets. It’s like all the thrillers I love—movies by
Michael Mann and the Coen Brothers and Luc Besson—wrapped up into one. It’s the
biggest challenge I’ve ever faced as a filmmaker, because it’s so far out of my
comfort zone, but that’s what I love about some of the directors I’ve admired
in the past, the ones who don’t stay in the same genre—though I’m not saying
I’d ever leave horror.
“EVERLY was a story I came up with that I had my college
buddy Yale Hannon write the screenplay for,” he continues. “It was on the Black
List last year, which was amazing and really helped propel it forward. And it
was the challenge of, ‘Can we make a movie that takes place entirely in one
room where the camera can’t leave?’ that inspired us to tell this story. It’s
something that’s very near and dear to my heart, and it’s gonna be insanity. I cannot wait to do it.” We’ll keep you posted on EVERLY’s progress.
