DELIRIUM Magazine, the bloody, sexy print periodical published by cult movie legend Charles Band and edited by SHOCK’s own Chris […]
The proposed Joe Dante film Monster Love – which Shock first told you about way back in 2011 – has been retooled over the years and is now being called Ombra Amore, and while the central premise remains the same, some of the plot details have been changed.
Financing for the project is underway at The Rome Film Festival
Right on the heels of posting Shock’s interview with Joe Dante, the reps handling Burying the Ex sent along a clip from the film.
His latest project is described as a “zombie romantic comedy” about what happens when a deceased ex-girlfriend rises from the dead and expects her relationship with her boyfriend to continue as normal. BURYING THE EX follows Max (Anton Yelchin), an all-around nice guy, and his overbearing but incredibly beautiful girlfriend, Evelyn (Ashely Greene).
Burying the Ex is the clever name for the latest horror-comedy to come from genre vet Joe Dante. The film, poised to make its debut this week at the Venice Film Festival, features a young cast that includes Star Trek’s Anton Yelchin, the Twilight franchise’s Ashley Greene and True Detective’s Alexandra Daddario.
Yelchin plays a guy caught in a relationship with an overbearing woman (Greene) that he’s afraid to cut ties with. She’s sexy as hell, but a tad too much to deal with. When she’s killed in a freak accident, he’s free and it’s not long until he finds a new romantic interest (Daddario) who is a better fit for his personality. His life takes a macabre turn, however, when his ex rises from the grave to give him hell.
While the film wasn’t shown completely to press before its festival debut, I did get a peak at a two-minute clip that definitely demonstrated that Dante-esque blend of dark humor. To learn more about the production – Dante’s first feature since Holes – and its tone.
