Kickstarter Alert:Tom Woodruff, Jr. Set to Direct Fire City

Tom Woodruff

Academy Award-winning special effects superstar Tom Woodruff, Jr. has worked on the crème de la crème of sci-fi and creature projects including the upcoming Enders Game and the new Percy Jackson:Sea of Monsters movie all the way back to Terminator, the Alien franchise, and my personal fav Pumpkinhead. With your help Woodruff will make his directorial debut with an independent horror thriller funded through Kickstarter.

First announced on sites like Stan Winston’s School of Character Arts, Dread Central and Shock Till You Drop it’s safe to say the horror community is behind this new exciting multi-level franchise created by first-time producing partners, and creators Brian Lubocki and Michael Hayes, who made a splash at last year’s Cannes Film Festival with the sizzle reel for Fire City. Check out the Demon in the Darkness video where a surprise star gets the better of a demon. Hint: he was your favorite filterless cop on Southland.

Tom was ready and looking for a project to sink his directorial teeth into, and then this particular project had such a focus on practical creature effects with such a vast world and story potential that he felt it would be the perfect debut. The world in this project is billed as a demon fantasy set against the noir backdrop of Fire City, a shadowy atmospheric world, where demons secretly live among humans - love it. The Interpreter Of Signs is the first feature film of the four-film project.

Horror fans are ready for a fresh new franchise and it looks like Fire City has all the right components to make that happen. The producers have created an all-consuming world with a dark take on the evil that lives among us, which promises to keep horror audiences captivated with not only film but a comic book and game as well. If all goes as planned Woodruff will start directing the first installment in January. Secure your spot in Hell by becoming personally responsible for getting this project made by putting down your shekels before the August 18th deadline. Kickstarter
