David Arquette Will Direct Glutton
A Misery-type 3D horror

30 March 2011  |  Written by Owen Williams  |  Source: Variety

David Arquette will be sticking with scares once the Scream 4 dust settles, directing the psychological thriller Glutton.

There's not much detail in Variety's announcement, other than that the film will be "in the vein of Misery" and be shot, of course, in 3D. Does a film in the vein of Misery need to be in 3D? If someone's tied to a bed and getting their ankles broken with a hammer, we're not sure we want to be that close to the action.

Anyone who saw Arquette's previous directorial outing, the scurrilous horror The Tripper - about rock-festival hippies being stalked and slashed by, to all intents and purposes, Ronald Reagan - might suspect that Glutton is likely to have its tongue firmly in its cheek. He's since made a 3D short called The Butler's In Love. Maybe that was an exercise to get his head round the technology.

We'll see whether Arquette has picked up any new tricks from Wes Craven when shooting starts in Canada in July.
