Hack/Slash For Bond, Fredrik Bond
Comic horror gains director

Commercials director Fredrik Bond has been confirmed as helming indie comic adaptation Hack/Slash, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

Hack/Slash is the brainchild of writer Tim Seeley, and has been haphazardly published by Chicago's Devil's Due since 2004.

The scenario is that Cassandra Hack, once the Final Girl in a horror scenario, took that experience and put it to some good use. She now travels the US, in various states of undress, hunting and killing slashers, backed up by the mysterious thug Vlad, who wears a gas mask and carries meat cleavers as his weapon of choice. The stories have generally been original to the comic, but there have been celebrity cameos from Child's Play's Chucky and HP Lovecraft's Reanimator Herbert West.

All good fun, and surely perfect for a nicely violent babefest. We want an R rating for this: none of your PG-13 nonsense. This ought to be Buffy the Vampire Slayer crossed with Crank, or we'll sulk.

Bond is also attached to remakes of Korean killer squid flick The Host and Tony Scott's early Deneuve / Bowie starrer The Hunger. You wait all your career for a movie break, and then three come along at once.
