Marcus Nispel Pursues Two Original Projects

ON talked to Friday the 13th director Marcus Nispel about his future plans. He says he’s now ready to turn to something original. Here’s an excerpt:

“There’s a movie that I’m interested in. A great movie about cloning, it’s called Immaculate Conception,” the German director said. “A girl gets pregnant, doesn’t know why. You think it goes like Rosemary’s Baby but it’s not a horror movie, though. You find out that she’s part of an experiment. A splinter group of the church found a rusty old nail in the hills of Golgotha and they’ve harvested the DNA they believe is from Jesus Christ. It’s like Marathon Man or Coma.”
