Pat just dropped word that Phantasm V is a go, but wait! What’s this? It’s already filmed and ready to go!!! No shit how the hell did they manage this with out anyone noticing, I’ll never know. It was also revealed that the series creator and director of the original and three sequels, Don Coscarelli is not the director. Written and directed by artist, David Hartman, under direct supervision by Coscarelli is what Shocktoyoudrop.com is reporting. Although it’s not the man himself behind, I’m just excited as hell that we are getting another sequel and not a lame remake!
Phantasmarchives.blogspot.com has dug up the following details and honestly it all sounds too good to be true! Take a look below and keep checking back here for a trailer. I’m sure we will be seeing one very soon..
Details are scant on the project right now, so here is just a tiny bit more than what all the other websites are reporting:
- To reiterate, this project has been filming little by little since 2008.
- The original working title for several years was “Reggie’s Tales.”
- The original cast members put in appearances along with some Don Coscarelli regulars.
- It was partly filmed in Crestline, CA at Reggie Bannister’s own home!
- Many of the familiar series elements are back… the ‘Cuda and the sphere especially. Oh, yes… there will be blood!
