    Creators and stars talk “HOLLISTON” Season Two & More

    In HOLLISTON (now in its second season Tuesday nights on FEARnet), aspiring filmmakers Adam and Joe, played by series creator/writer Adam Green (of HATCHET fame) and his fellow executive producer Joe Lynch (director of WRONG TURN 2), break Kane Hodder (the FRIDAY THE 13TH go-to Jason plays a version of himself) out of a hospital and move him into Adam’s apartment so that he’ll star in the duo’s horror short. Heads spin EXORCIST-style, Danielle Harris shows up as herself, Bailee Madison of ONCE UPON A TIME appears in an ORPHAN send-up and Adam gets advice from a hideous closet monster called Oderous Urungus (Dave Brockie). Just your typical sitcom – if sitcoms were designed by and for horror fans.

    EXCL: Nicolas Winding Refn gives an update on “MANIAC COP”

    Nicolas Winding Refn, the stylish maniac behind the PUSHER movies, BRONSON and this week’s nightmarish ONLY GOD FORGIVES, is something of a hardened genre fan. Already evident in the likes of his heightened, violent films and nods like Riz Ortolani’s “Oh My Love” (from GOODBYE UNCLE TOM) on the DRIVE Soundtrack, last year brought word he had teamed with William Lustig to produce a new film in the beloved, cult MANIAC COP series.

    Already the product of a great horror team-up, the original three MANIAC COP films were directed by Lustig (VIGILANTE, MANIAC) and written and produced by Larry Cohen (IT’S ALIVE, Q). Now, Refn and Lustig are looking to resurrect the killer cop tale and while speaking to FANGORIA about ONLY GOD FORGIVES, he explains, “We’re working on it as we speak. I’ve been a little bit delayed because of finishing this film and travelling around. It’s something that we’re very much prioritizing now that I’m coming to the end of this film. It opens up a whole new breathing space to concentrate on future projects.”

    “I’m a huge lover of pop cinema and it was basically my relationship with Bill Lustig that led to rethinking the MANIAC COP franchise. He owns it and we basically partnered up on it to give it a spin. I’ve always loved the original films, so it was a way to revisit part of my past, but also it’s one of the few franchises that has not outstayed their welcome.”

    Helming the film himself does not sound the in the cards however. “I wouldn’t be the right person to direct it purely because I have such an admiration for the original,” Refn says. “So, Bill’s film is still so fresh in my mind that I wouldn’t be the right… I mean, I’ve been approached for other remakes of other genre movies and I’ve always declined. I’m too old, because they are a part of my identity. So, to get someone that is younger—meaning somebody that maybe doesn’t have the same sensibilities connected to it—somebody who can re-envision it from their perspective.”

    Keep an eye on Fango for the full interview later this week. ONLY GOD FORGIVES is out Friday, July 19.

The film’s official Facebook has lit up with activity however, and it’s not just more behind-the-scenes shots and birthday shout outs to the cast. Instead, a thermal, aerial view of San Diego and ominous promise of “There’s Something Out There Waiting For Us…”
