Fox must be making a killing (no pun intended) on its line of direct-to-DVD/Blu-ray sequels for Wrong Turn and Joy Ride.
It’s the only reason we can see them pushing forward with both franchises. While we await for the inevitable word that Wrong Turn 6 is in the works, Fox reps inform us today that Joy Ride 3 begins shooting September 3rd.
The last installment in the series – Joy Ride 2: Dead Ahead – arrived in 2008. Before that, let’s not forget, the decent 2001 film Joy Ride with Paul Walker and Steve Zahn.
“Horror auteur” (the press release’s words, not ours) Declan OBrien (Wrong Turn 4: Bloody Beginnings, Wrong Turn 5: Bloodlines) will direct from a script he penned.
Rusty Nail is back on the road again looking to punish injustice at every turn and this time its with a group of hotheaded street racers on their way to the Road Rally 1000. As they drive through a desolate shortcut on the way to the race, an encounter with Rusty turns sour and soon he is tracking, teasing and torturing them until the end of the road.
Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment will distribute in Summer 2014 on Blu-ray, DVD, Digital HD and VOD.
