File this one under -- "I didn't even know they were in preproduction." Filmmaker J.T. Petty has just announced he'll start shooting his next feature next week -- the 3D Hellbenders, starring Clifton Collins and based on Petty's own graphic novel (I'm pretty well versed in comics but I must have missed that one). More after the jump.
Variety reports that the film "is about a secret group of elite demonologists in a Brooklyn diocese who battle a terrifying supernatural force that threatens their lives and faith." So it's a team of God-fearing Ghostbusters then? Given Petty's track record, I'm sure he'll find a way to make that premise interesting.
"The 3D film also stars Clancy Brown and Dan Fogler." Petty "recently sold his spec, 'Zombies vs. Robots' to Sony... Collins can currently be seen on the NBC skein 'The Event.'"
