It looks like Project Greenlight “winner” John Gulager might return two Feast sequels. I ran by Gulager while leaving The Mist panel at the San Diego Comic-Con, but didn’t have time to stop and talk. Now I wish I had.
“Feast 2 and 3 are coming together, with [director John] Gulager back,” Feast co-screenwriter Marcus Dunstan told Fangoria. “Neo Art & Logic is producing again, and if they let us get away with the vulgarities we’ve currently scripted, and if we don’t get deported, we just may have the NC-17-rated monsterfest that was only hinted at in the first film.”
From what I understand, feast was a modest success on DVD thanks to it’s low budget. I’m sure if you take Blockbuster out of the equation (due to an NC-17) it would be harder to turn a profit on the sequels. So an NC-17 rating is probably just hype or wishful thinking, but it doesn’t make sense in the business world. UNLESS the studio releases separate R-Rated and Unrated cuts of the film.
I’m also glad to see Gulager is still getting some Hollywood work. He’s actually a pretty good director, despite what the reality show tried to portray. I met and sat with him during a screening of This Film is Not Yet Rated at Sundance a couple years back. Him and his wife were very nice (photo left).
