THE LOST SKELETON WALKS AMONG US! COMING SOON?
Thanks to one of my fellow bloggers Dempsey Sanders, I found this posting on Bantam Street's web site by Larry Blamire about his next film project.
After THE LOST SKELETON OF CADAVRA I never really considered a sequel. I tend to not like them. They usually don’t work. Particularly the ones that simply recycle the original material. No way, I said.
But an idea came to me that I just thought was too good to pass up. I felt THE LOST SKELETON RETURNS AGAIN would be fresh enough, a fairly different kind of movie.
Then recently, as some of you know, an idea for a third film hit me, something I felt I simply had to do. So we announced there would be yet another sequel, a third installment in the Skeleton Saga (as it’s now starting to look like, terrifyingly enough).
Well, a couple of days ago, Mike Schlesinger took great amusement in pointing out something I’d completely forgotten. Evidently, in an interview, shortly after wrapping LSRA, I stated quite flatly that this was it, no more Lost Skeleton films. I laughed, and responded that I was truly the Brett Favre of independent filmmakers.
I’ll never say never again. Well, maybe.
Anyway, thought it was a good time to unleash the title.
May God have mercy on us all…
