Bloody-Disgusting is reporting that Stephen Susco (The Grudge) has been hired to write the script for Hack/Slash, the upcoming movie based on the Tim Seeley comic book. Back in April of 2008, the project had Justin Marks writing the script that was to be directed by Todd Lincoln. Lincoln was also replaced back in July when Fredrik Bond was brought in to helm the movie (Read: “˜Hack/Slash’ Gets A New Director In Fredrik Bond)
Hack/Slash follows Cassie Hack, a girl who never had it easy growing up. When her evil Lunch Lady mother — who was murdered after it was discovered that she had been killing children and processing them into the food — comes back from the dead and resumes her murderous habits, Cassie takes her own mother out. After that, she begins her life as a slayer of Slashers, the vicious living and dead beings who walk the Earth, slaughtering all who cross their paths. She is joined by a giant named Vlad who acts as her bodyguard and strength.
For some reason, it’s incredibly difficult to find information online about Hack/Slash. At first, I was lead to believe that Miss Hack went around killing horror movie slasher killers that we all know, and that was the coolest thing ever to me. Now, it appears my initial idea is off and most of those that she kills are just similar to what we know as horror movie slashers. From what I can tell, she has gone toe to toddler toe with Chucky, but that may be it.
Much like Matthew Vaughn’s Kick-Ass, this title could end up being a really good time at the movies. We just need to hope and pray that they don’t cast Megan Fox.
