Now in development at Rogue with J.T. Petty (The Burrowers) writing and directing, Benattar says they’ve found a suitable narrative to bring the “Faces” theme to the big screen.
“We’re sort of taking a look at in the world of ‘Saw’ and ‘Hostel’ – who are the people who actually go watch these movies? So we’ve tied that in with [the new] Faces of Death,” Benattar tells Rotten Tomatoes. “We have a narrative story which the original never had, and we also nod for the ‘fans.’ I use that word loosely. Guys like me who watched it as a kid, who snuck away to go watch these things. We have a few nods to those original films.”
