Blood and Honey’ Cosmic Creation Director – The Hollywood Reporter
The cinematic world may soon have a new cinematic universe to rival the MCU and MosterVerse, albeit at a significantly lower price point. And with more gore.
After the continuous shocking success of Winnie-the-Pooh: Blood and HoneyBritish micro-budget slasher film went viral last year and grossed nearly $1 million at the box office in Mexico before hitting global theaters on February 15, writer/director Rhys Frake -Waterfield says he’s planning on creating an entire universe full of X-rated gory adaptations of beloved childhood stories.
The filmmaker – who along with producer Scott Jeffrey runs the low-budget horror banner Jagged Edge Productions – was revealed with Hollywood Reporter last year he developed Peter Pan’s Neverland Nightmare, based on the book by JM Barries (but this time featuring the “severely obese” Tinkerbell in “rehab”). Jeffrey later revealed that he had his eye on the world’s most famous deer in Bambi: Calculation (talk to Fear Center website that his Bambi will be an “evil killing machine”).
But with Winnie-the-Pooh: Blood and Honeyis accelerating as it prepares to be fully released by Fathom Events on 1,500 screens in the United States and various other international territories, and with a sequel already in development, Rhys Frake-Waterfield now says CHEAP that he’s planning to bring all of these once family-friendly characters — and more — into an unruly universe.
“The idea was that we would try to imagine them all in the same world, so we could have intersections,” he said. “People have been texting saying they really want to see Bambi vs Pooh.”
Although Frake-Waterfield admits that the current series of ideas — all available for baton fun thanks to the original books that have been released into the public domain — sounds more like an “alternative Disney reality.” , with the studio having successfully adapted so many stories for the screen, he said that was not the intention.
“There are many, many other ideas that have nothing to do with Disney, countless fairy tales and urban legends, concepts that are synonymous with your childhood and they are things that I want to build into. a twisted alternate reality.
