Creature Corner caught up with writer Hans Rodionoff and asked about the low-budget Man-Thing adaptation which Artisan is currently filming. He said that the film is not going direct to video and its not your standard Marvel “hero” film…
“This movie is nothing like ‘Swamp Thing.’ This, quite possibly, could be the scariest Marvel movie ever. It’s their first real foray into straight up horror. ‘Blade’ is kind of a horror/action hybrid. This one is just out for the scares,” explains Rodionoff. “It’s a horror movie. ‘Swamp Thing’ was a comic book movie about a swamp creature protagonist. The Man-Thing is not the protagonist in this movie.”
