Attack Of The Clones #22
We were sent the above poster today, for a new indie Brit flick called Monster Project that has just gone into production, from writer/director John Shackleton (Panic Button).
Described as a “cross-genre” film, Monster Project follows six teenagers who undergo a harrowing transformation into monsters, imbued with various abilities and ailments, and are forced to go on the run, fighting for their survival.
Commenting on the film, Shackleton said: “Lurking beneath a hugely fantastical movie premise, anchored in reality, is a universal story surrounding a group of alienated teenagers. I’m hoping that this film will have a little something for everyone.”
Anyone else thinking it sounds a little like Chronicle, which in itself was a like a US version of Misfits? But that’s not the real reason it’s making an appearance in our irregular “Attack Of The Clones” feature. Instead, check out the 2000AD cover below from 2009, created by artist Edmund Bagwell for a story called “Cradlegrave”.
Uncanny, isn’t it?
