David R. Ellis made a name for himself in the horror genre with the 2003 release of Final Destination 2, but since then films such as Cellular and Snakes on a Plane didn’t manage to connect with audiences. Up next for the helmer is the summer ending 3-D feature Final Destination: Death Trip 3D and his new feature announced by Variety sounds like something that could either be great or another Snakes debacle.
The new film is titled Humpty Dumpty and it isn’t about an egg shaped nursery rhyme character, instead it is a 3-D sci-fi horror pic is about a half-human, half-alien creature who embarks on a murderous rampage after his alien mother is abused by two rednecks in the Deep South.
Unknown scripter Billy Majestic is penning the screenplay and the film will be produced by Mark Ordesky’s Amber Entertainment. Production is expected to begin in September.
