Timo Tjahjanto is soon to be a legend.
It’s a little frustrating that this Indonesian-based filmmaker has yet to break in Hollywood, but it’s comforting to know that he’s set to get behind the camera for the remake of Train to Busan for James Wan’s Atomic Monster and New Line Cinema.
He also revealed on social media late last night that he’s attached to a project with the filmmaking team behind Sinister and Doctor Strange, director Scott Derrickson and writer C. Robert Cargill.
While he did share a photo of the script’s top page, he blocked out the title, which begins with an “H” and ends with an “R”. Any guesses?
What we did learn is that it’s an action film that veers into horror with Tjahjanto tweeting out this nugget of hype: “Ultra violent, ultra absurd, ultra over the top & ultra heartwarming.”
Timo should already be a household name in horror, having co-directed the insanely gory Macabre and the super popular V/H/S/2 segment “Safe Haven”. He’s also behind several classics including Netflix’s action-packed The Night Comes for Us, as well as May the Devil Take You, Headshot, and Killers. Oh, and just wait until you see his V/H/S/94 segment, it’s going to blow all your fucking minds.
There’s a lot of horror behind this project as Derrickson also directed The Exorcism of Emily Rose, Deliver Us From Evil and Hellraiser: Inferno, not to mention The Day the Earth Stood Still.
More on this hype project as it comes in.
