The folks over at Bloody Disgusting have recently posted the plot description as well as the poster for Darren Lynn Bousman’s (Saw II, III, IV, REPO! THE GENETIC OPERA) new film, 11-11-11. Bousman also has another film, MOTHER’S DAY, getting set to open early in 2011, and there hasn’t been any casting news for the film, but the plot description is as follows:
“After the tragic death of his wife and child, famed American author Joseph Crone travels from the United States to Barcelona, Spain to reunite with his estranged brother Samuel and dying father, Richard. However, fate has a different plan for Joseph as his life becomes plagued with strange happenings, and the constant sightings of the number 11. Curiosity quickly turns to obsession, and Joseph soon realizes that this number holds a horrific meaning not only to himself but possibly to all of religion. Isolated in a foreign country with only the support of his companion, Sadie, Joseph soon realizes that 11/11/11 is more than just a date, it’s a WARNING!”
I enjoyed the installments Bousman contributed to the SAW franchise as well as his gothic rock opera REPO! THE GENETIC OPERA, but I might be more excited about this movie when a teaser or official trailer gets released. Filming has yet to start for 11-11-11 and considering the release date is less than a year away it looks as if it’s gonna be a busy time for Bousman and company to meet that date. The plot description itself isn’t as compelling or interesting as I hoped it would be, but the site offers a teaser that seems a little more ominous than the plot description:
“For many years, the numbers 11:11 have been mysteriously appearing to millions of people across the world. It has become known as the 11:11 phenomenon. On the 11th day of the 11th month of 2011 a gateway will open. Something’s coming through.”
Head on over to the Official Site to check it out as well as a countdown to the release date at the bottom of the page. 11-11-11 is set to be unleashed on the world November 11, 2011; mark your calendar!
