And for the record... the Phantasm Archives broke news and gave the first picture from this project back in 2009! No one has much been listening, though. Now that it's official... have a look back at the original scoop.
Details are scant on the project right now, so here is just a tiny bit more than what all the other websites are reporting:
- To reiterate, this project has been filming little by little since 2008.
- The original working title for several years was "Reggie's Tales."
- The original cast members put in appearances along with some Don Coscarelli regulars.
- It was partly filmed in Crestline, CA at Reggie Bannister's own home!
- Many of the familiar series elements are back... the 'Cuda and the sphere especially. Oh, yes... there will be blood!
UPDATE: It looks like one cast member has stepped forward! If this doesn't get you excited..... (anybody notice that this means the Lady in Lavender has been in all of the odd-numbered Phantasm movies?)
