Kill List and Sightseers director Ben Wheatley has revealed that he's developing an animated film called Mega Evil Motherfuckers. Judging by the title this movie obviously isn't going to be a kids film. He's planning it as a stop-motion/claymation style animated film that will be very violent, but funny. Here's what he had to say about it in an interview with The Hitlist,
We're half-way through the script on that. We're talking to animation houses and guys about that...it's a whole pool of people in the UK who have done 'Frankenweenie' and 'Fantastic Mr. Fox' and stuff, so the talents all there to do it. It's gonna be really, really violent. But funny.
I enjoy Wheatley's dark style and sick sense of humor, so I'm excited to see what comes of this. I really hope he can pull together the film production. If you haven't seen any of Wheatley's previous films you should definitely check them out, but I hope you have a strong stomach. His stuff is pretty gut-wrenching. For those of you that have seen his films, are you excited to hear about this new animated project?
The next film we see from the director will be A Field in England, an English Civil War film that's been described as "a psychedelic trip into magic and madness."
