‘Some Kind of Hate’ Director Shares Next Project Options [Exclusive]

Up-and-coming director Adam Egypt Mortimer shares the details of his potential next projects, exclusively with us.

We caught up with director Adam Egypt Mortimer at Tribeca. Mortimer forms part of the directing team behind new horror anthology Holidays and previously brought us female slasher flick Some Kind of Hate. The film screened at last year’s Frightfest and finally offered us a female killer who could rival the likes of Michael Myers, Jason Vorhees and Freddy Krueger.

Since then we’ve been keeping a close eye on Mortimer’s work and had to find out what he’s up to next. Whilst chatting at Tribeca he revealed that he has several projects in the works at the moment, all at various stages.

The first one, and one listed on his imdv page, is Sinatoro:

Sinatoro is the long-gestating project that I developed with comic book genius Grant Morrison, which has mutated into something very different than where it began — I can’t really talk about what’s happening with that right now but it’s pretty cool.

In addition to Sinatoro the director has another two projects churning away, the first of which is a project that we first spoke of last summer. The second would see him unite with his Some Kind of Hate co-writer.

I have two scripts which I’m trying to get made right away — one is the heartbreak-nightmare Noah Segan movie which is something along the lines of Zulawski’s Possession, set in Singapore. I describe it as if Wong Kar Wai made a horror film.  The other one i’m trying to get done is an adaptation of my Some Kind of Hate co-writer’s first novel, about an imaginary friend coming back later in life.  Hopefully one of those will come through this year.

We’ll give you an update as soon as Mortimer has settled on a choice, but given what he’s produced so far, it’s bound to be worth a watch.

Catch Adam’s debut feature Some Kind of Hate when it arrives on DVD this Monday 9th May.
