Director on Fox Atomic horror film
Director JT Petty will be moving into his next film, Gothic, for Fox Atomic soon (read the full details here) and we dropped him a quick line for some word on the project.
“I wasn’t familiar with ‘Goth’ before Fox brought it to me, but the book’s great,” he tells us when asked if he was familiar with the source material. “It’s the first time I’ve seen a bildungsroman I could really sink my teeth into; kinda like ‘Rushmore’ with a bunch of serial killers in it. Or maybe it’s like ‘Spanking the Monkey’ with murder instead of incest. Or…’Pretty in Pink’ if it was scary for the right reasons?”
Those analogies work for us. Petty is currently wrapping up The Burrowers and its web-based prequel, “Red Earth,” for Lionsgate and FEARnet, respectively.
