Julien Maury and Alexandre Bustillo Are LIVID

Hellraiser? Who needs Hellraiser? Julien Maury and Alexandre Bustillo don't, that's for damn sure. After doing a brief 'will the or won't they' dance with The Weisntein Brothers the duo behind stunning French slasher picture A L'Interieur opted to walk away from the Hollywood remake train and instead go their own way. And where does their own way lead? It leads to Livid.

It's young Lucy's first day as a trainee in-house caregiver. She visits Mrs Jessel, an old woman who lies in cerebral coma, by herself, in her large desolate house. Learning by accident that Mrs Jessel, a former dance teacher of repute, supposedly possesses a treasure somewhere in the house, Lucy and friends William and Ben decide to search the house in the hope of finding it. At night, they get into the house, which reveals itself to be increasingly peculiar. Their hunt for Mrs Jessel’s treasure leads them into a horrifying supernatural series of events that will change Lucy forever...

Set in a small town on the Irish coast, this will be the English language debut for the duo and is set to roll later in 2009.

Maury's English is quite good, actually, so I don't picture language being an issue. Bustillo's is a little more shaky but they won't have any trouble making themselves understood ...

I am a little more than excited.

They probably just got a greenlight on this one first. That doesn't automatically mean that SNOW is never going to happen. In order to survive as a director you have to constantly juggle at least five different projects and then direct whichever gets funding and the go-ahead first. If you stubbornly focus all your energy on a single projct not only do you set yourself up for major disappointment, you can also find yourself with many years of inactivity between films, which is something most directors can't afford financially and don't wish to deal with creatively.

I understand all that, its just that I thought that they had all ready shot "Snow". I was just waiting for a release date. Clearly I was mistaken. Oh well. In regards to Livid, I love the "A Dark Fairytale" bit, this could be genius!!

nice to see these two not going the Hollywood remake route.
out of all the praising of recent French horror films, A L’Interieur was the only one that's really stunned me so far.
agree with the 'Dark Fairytale' tag. makes the possibilities seem much more interesting.

PS aside from the rumoured treasure in the house, not sure why there's people over at BLOODY DISGUSTING who think this sounds just like People Under the Stairs??!!!
