from Shock Til You Drop:
Director Jack Messitt dropped us a line with an update on his film Midnight Movie, which has been released but is getting the "uncut" treatment. Here's what he had to say.
"Midnight Movie: The Killer Cut, slated for a limited theatrical release, will feature newly shot scenes, restored footage from the original shoot, new VFX and new score composed just for this version of the film.
A movie of our size rarely gets a chance like this. But Bigfoot Entertainment was impressed with the performance of the original version and gave us the opportunity to revisit our work. It was a lot of fun to go in after two years and change some things around.
Because the original version of the movie was well received, we didn't try to create a different movie. But I think that the changes that were made, along with the additional footage and enhanced VFX, make this version a better movie.
After taking the summer to re-cut the film and shoot some new footage, we just completed re-mixing the audio and adding the score composed just for this new cut. We are in the midst of completing the new VFX and Midnight Movie: The Killer Cut should be ready by the end of the summer."
Stay tuned for a trailer, in the meantime, check out this artwork...
