Danielle Harris Heads Down To The Farm
For Michael Biehn and Xavier Gens

Danielle Harris Heads Down To The Farm

It's a few years now since the whole Grindhouse debacle, but it seems that Michael Biehn is still feeling the Planet Terror vibe. He's just embarked on a partnership with his recent Divide director Xavier Gens to produce no fewer than three gnarly new grindhouse horror projects. The first will be Gens' The Farm, starring scream queen Danielle Harris

Don't expect much in the way of groovy trains or Adge Cutler-type cider consumption: this Farm is about a "veteran" (of what?) returning to his Texas home, only to find himself immediately fighting again. His new war is on three fronts: against his innner demons, the greedy corporation that wants his land, and also a "horror that threatens to devour the American heartland". The Tea Party? If only.

Harris (Stakeland, Hatchet 2, various Halloweens, including Rob Zombie's) is obviously no stranger to horror, and she'll co-star with Michael Eklund and Ivan Gonzalez, both of whom are Divide survivors like Biehn. Xavier Gens, you'll recall, was the mind behind the barking mad French nazi cannibal horror Frontier(s). He had Hitman taken away from him during the editing process, because his cut was considered violent to an insane degree.

The other two films in the deal that Biehn and Gens will oversee are Carlo Rizzo's Up And Down, and Greg Morin's The Predicator. Further details for those aren't yet forthcoming, but The Farm will start shooting in Canada at the beginning of next year. Gens plans to make something called Cold Skin and a French gangster movie before he gets to it.

Cold Skin is the debut novel by Albert Sanchez Pinol. If done right it could be an excellent examination of isolation & human desperation for contact, emotion & survival. If done wrong it could be a mess. I'm interested to see what Gens will make of it. More
