Marshall Helming Sacrilege Next
Source: Variety March 11, 2008

Doomsday helmer Neil Marshall will write and direct Sacrilege, a horror film to be set in the Old West, for Rogue Features.

Marshall told Variety "it is set during the Gold Rush, a time remembered for incidents like the Donner Party. It is meant to be a pitch-black, gritty, period horror movie."

Marshall also wrote and directed Dog Soldiers and The Descent. He added that the picture will draw on themes of isolation and paranoia and such influences as John Carpenter's The Thing. "This is 'Unforgiven' by way of H.P. Lovecraft, with that grim, gritty setting and a horror element nobody has seen before," he said.

He'll begin writing immediately.
Hmmm, sounds pretty cool.
I got a glimpse in my head of a Clive Barker short story with The Duke aka John Wayne. Long story, tell ya later.
For some reason I had a bad feeling about this when I was reading that. Maybe it's Undead or Alive that is still causing me nightmares about horror western genre. But this is Neil Marshall. I trust the dude.
This sounds F'ing great!!

I hope they don't screw an idea like this up.
