Howard Ford's gorgeous-looking The Dead (pictured above), which he co-directed with his brother Jonathan, was one of the most talked about indie horror films in recent years, thanks largely to it being the first zombie film to shoot in Africa. We've just received news of Ford's next project, another supernatural thriller, called Indelible. Details after the jump.
Here's the press release we just received concerning Howard Ford's Indelible: "Director Howard J Ford of the critically acclaimed zombie movie ‘The Dead', released by Anchor Bay in February 2012, announces his partnership with Armory Films and Mugshot Films for his new movie ‘Indelible' slated to commence principal photography in September 2012."
"Written and to be directed by Ford, ‘Indelible' is a supernatural thriller and the first acquisition for the newly formed Armory Films headed by Christopher Lemole, Billy Asher Rosenfeld and Tim Zajaros, and Producer Mark Andrews of Mugshot Films.
"'Indelible will not be just any supernatural thriller in the way some think a film like this will play out' - said Ford who is represented by the Gersh Agency. 'When they get to the end of this movie, audiences will not only have felt tension and fear, but I want it to drive thoughts in a way that will hit hard in the heart and stay there long after the credits roll.'
"Ford, who is frequently compared to George Romero, has fielded numerous offers since ‘The Dead', which has earned over $10M worldwide on a budget of only $150,000, but has tenaciously held out in order to direct ‘Indelible'. While the plot line is being kept under wraps for now, Ford's burgeoning legions of fans, which have waited with baited breath for ‘The Dead' director's next outing, should expect more of his signature thrills and chills.
"'Tim Zajaros and I had been tracking ‘Indelible' for several years and are excited that we are finally in the position to make this film' – said Christopher Lemole, President of Armory Films.
"Mark Andrews President of Mugshot Films said 'Howard and I have been working on this project for a long time and I am very excited to finally see it coming to fruition.'"
