Director Darren Lynn Bousman is still shooting his upcoming horror/thriller 11-11-11 but this weekend, not only did the film already sell to a bunch of foreign markets, Bousman crafted a creepy little teaser trailer that hints at the madness we can expect from the mind of the man behind Saw II, III, IV and Repo! The Genetic Opera. Read about the sales, check out some new images and, more importantly, watch the trailer after the break.
While the trailer kind of starts off slow, it really picks up with some insane visuals that almost look like Bousman is taking us into the depths of hell. At least, that’s what I got out of it. Apparently, I’m not the only one either. According to the Hollywood Reporter, the film sold to six territories based on the strength of the trailer alone. The countries and companies are “CIS (Luxor), Scandinavia (Scanbox), Benelux (Just Bridge), Turkey (Mars), Middle East (Eagle), and Israel (United King).” That’s pretty impressive for a movie that’s still in production. There are ongoing talks for more territories as well.
Here are some photos from the film that also come from Bousman’s blog. They give a great visual sense of the film.
Previously, Bousman announced the cast of his film which includes Timothy Gibbs, Michael Landes, Wendy Glenn, Lluis Soler, Ángela Rosal, Brendan Price, Salomé Jimenez, Benjamin Cook, and Montse Alcoverro and also, released this plot description:
After the tragic death of his wife and child, famed American author Joseph Crone travels from the United States to Barcelona, Spain to reunite with his estranged brother Samuel and dying father, Richard. However, fate has a different plan for Joseph as his life becomes plagued with strange happenings, and the constant sightings of the number 11. Curiosity quickly turns to obsession, and Joseph soon realizes that this number holds a horrific meaning not only to himself but possibly to all of religion. Isolated in a foreign country with only the support of his companion, Sadie, Joseph soon realizes that 11/11/11 is more than just a date, it’s a WARNING!
11-11-11 is scheduled for release, when else, on November 11, 2011.
