As you may already know, the popular ‘Amateur Night’ segment from the found footage anthology horror film VHS will be getting a feature length adaptation. The project has already been titled and we have just learned that a director is attached. Head inside for full details on the project after the break!
The feature length adaptation of David Bruckner’s ‘Amateur Night’ will be known as Siren. V/H/S alum Gregg Bishop will be at the helm of the adaptation. He is responsible for the indie favorite Dance of the Dead and also helmed the ‘Dante the Great’ segment in the latest V/H/S film. No explicit word on why Bruckner isn’t directing but it likely has something to do with his involvement with the latest installment in the Friday the 13th franchise.
This latest announcement comes courtesy of Ain’t it Cool News. The outlet also reports that the adaptation will be backed by the Chiller Network. Chiller’s previous foray into filmmaking was the festival standout, The Boy, which they co-produced with Elijah Wood’s company Spectrevision.
