Wes Craven’s 25/8 Gets a New Title


When Wes Craven’s latest fright flick arrives in theaters in 2010, it won’t be called 25/8, a moniker it has held since the director began production. Instead, it is now entitled “My Soul to Take.”

Craven broke the news via his Twitter account this morning. ShockTillYouDrop.com says that while the title was once apropos for the film, the term “25/8” is no longer used in the story so it wouldn’t really make sense to call it that. Craven adds “25/8” has always been a working title.

Max Thierot, Denzel Whitaker and Shareeka Epps star in what is Craven’s first film that he has written and directed since New Nightmare in the ’90s. Thierot plays “Bug,” a young man who is possibly being terrorized by his serial killer father sixteen years after his supposed death.
