Chain Letter horror - dumbest idea ever?
The story behind this film seems utterly ridiculous, but I have no doubt that it will make money and do well in the box office.
Chain Letter is about a psychotic killer who murders people who haven't forwarded on his chain letter. He's called Chain Man and he kills people with chains.
Are you groaning yet? What's the bet that there's been some terribly unhappy childhood issue with a chain letter which caused the death of his parents, and there would have to be physical chains involved too.
The Hollywood Reporter through Jo Blo tells us the utterly disappointing news and that Nikki Reed, Noah Segan, Keith David and Betsy Russell will star in the film. Twisted Pictures are behind it as are Producers from the Saw franchise. Deon Tayler is writing.
Michael Bailey Smith is already signed to play Chain Man with his victims picked out as Matthew Cohen, Cody Kasch, Michael J. Pagan, Cherilyn Wilson, Nikki Reed and Noah Segan. Clifton Powell is the high school coach (of course there's one!) and Betsy Russell and Keith David are police officers who are tying to link together the clues and lock down the killer, perhaps using a fence or two for information on the way.
Yes, the jokes may be corny, but not as much as the idea, surely?
Update: Danielle in the comments is insistent that I update the details of the film, so here goes:
Deon Taylor and Michael J. Pagan are producing and are co-writing the project.
There you go.
