Henry’s McNaughton Circling Two Films


Teen suffers housewife lust and Harvest

John McNaughton, who made a splash on the horror scene with Henry: Portrait of a Serial Killer in the ’80s, is in various stages of development on two projects.

He’s circling Sweet for Peter Newman Productions. Nicholas Hoult (Clash of the Titans) appears to be the front runner for the role of Steve, an average teenager who happens to get kidnapped and raped by two delusional housewives. Wowzer. Considered more drama than horror (but with a plot like that…), the film was scripted by John Wohlbruck.

Then there’s The Harvest for Elephant Eye Films. Said to straddle the line between a horror film and a psychological thriller, this one concerns a young doctor and nurse try to adjust to a new life when their child is born with a debilitating disease. How far are they willing to go in order to save their only son’s life? McNaughton’s at work on this one with writer Stephen Lancellotti.

No telling which film he’ll do next, but we’ll let you know when he’s locked into something!
