Horror movie director announces next big film

NAMBOUR horror flick director Chris Sun’s next movie will be about the “hounds of hell” unleashed upon the world and will be shot in Mexico of the Caribbean.

Mr Sun has used social media to announced that after “extensive discussions” with his manager at Shoreline Entertainment, he had been been “attached to direct” the feature film Jowls.

“Jowls will either be shot in Mexico, Puerto Rico or The Dominican Republic, possibly even the USA,” he wrote on Facebook.

“Writer Kamal John Iskander has done an amazing job on the script and Steven my manager is excited I finally agreed to direct this project.”

Mr Sun, whose other movies have included Charlie’s Farm and Daddy’s Little Girl, wrote that Jowls would have the biggest budget he had worked with to date and he was excited to “sink my teeth” into it.

His post said Jowls would be shot ahead of the next movie he had planned to make, House for Rent.

Meanwhile, Mr Sun plans to complete Boar, the movie which stalled last year due to finance difficulties with six days left to shoot, by October.

In a video posted on Facebook, he said he and his producer were working hard to secure funding to finish the film.

Most of the film, about a giant wild pig’s reign of terror, was shot at Kandanga, but Mr Sun hopes to finish the remainder of filming on the Gold Coast.

“As son as we can get to call the crew, which is coming soon, hopefully, we’ll be back on set down the Gold Coast to finish Boar and that will be it, guys, straight into editing,” he said.

“Let’s, get this f....r done, let’s get this 14 foot monster killing people and get it out on the theatrical and cinema screens for you all to see.”

Mr Sun pointed out that the movie was not a remake of Razorback, which he described as a “legendary” film which could never be beaten. 

Mr Sun plans to move to the United States with his partner, Chrissie, after Boar is completed to begin work on Jowls.

He thanked supporters for sticking by him and said “the only way is UP from here, folks”.
