Marcus Nispel Boarding Hack/Slash Adaptation


The Hack/Slash feature film has been around the development block, seeing writers come and go.  But there’s new movement on the property.  Marcus Nispel is now attached to direct the feature film based on the horror comic book.

Nispel previously helmed The Texas Chainsaw Massacre, Friday the 13th and Conan the Barbarian.  He’s in familiar waters with Hack/Slash, as the story concerns a young girl who travels the country killing slashers with her good pal Vlad.

It’s bloody, brutal, sometimes funny…  Perhaps a decent fit for Nispel.

When the Tim Seeley-created comic book first hit the scene, a screen adaptation was announced shortly thereafter.

Todd Lincoln (The Apparition) was first brought aboard to direct, but that was some time ago.  Since then, Hack/Slash has been in development hell as the production outfit behind the project, Relativity, figured out the right approach to the material.  It appears they have sorted it out.  The question now is: Will Hack/Slash move forward this time?

Alexandra Milchan, Adrian Askarieh and Daniel Alter are producing.
