Previously known as The Post-Ironic Hipster Massacre, the original script was written by American screenwriter Sean Fraiser and I will be anglicizing it, adding some of Scullion-esque humour and making it much more… Shoreditch.
HIPSTER MASSACRE is about a group of trendy East London hipsters who head to an exclusive music gig… only to get much more than they bargained for. There will be blood. And scares. And laughs. And moustaches.
Lots of moustaches.
HIPSTER MASSACRE also has two directors onboard – both of which I can vouch for as being awesome and “not too completely insane” – and people who may be familiar to those who frequently read my Blog or love short horror films.
Yes, the gruesome twosome behind the awesome Bloody Cuts series and the Producers / Director of DON’T MOVE – my first ever short film (you know, the one they might be making into a feature… more on this soon) – will be taking the reigns of HIPSTER MASSACRE.
I couldn’t think of anyone better to helm this film (sorry Ridley, maybe next time) and can’t wait to send them the rewrite and watch their brains implode. In a good way.
Or bad. Any kind of response is nice, to be honest…
Cloud Burst Productions have also been a pleasure to work with and have a LOT of passion for the project. I am currently working on the first redraft and looking forward to delivering it to them before Christmas. Possibly covered in tinsel.
FINAL NOTE: re-writing someone else’s work is a tough task. It will happen to all screenwriters at some point – even the best ones – and I genuinely hope I do Sean Fraiser’s work justice. The original script is very good and without it I wouldn’t be onboard this fantastically-promising project. Thank you Sean.
As always, I will keep you all updated on the progress of this.
Bring on the Hipsters…
