After four remakes/reboots in a row (including this summer’s Conan the Barbarian) Marcus Nispel’s next feature will not only be an original story, but it’s also based on his own idea.

Entitled Backmask (and budgeted at a relatively low million), little is known about the project, apart from the director revealing that is will feature “paranoia, possession and the paranormal.” Hmmm.

Nispel is a veteran of over 1000 commercials and music videos, a number of which have garnered him a variety of awards over the years. His film work his brought him less success (both Friday the 13th and The Texas Chainsaw Massacre were produced under Michael Bay’s creatively-stilted Platinum Dunes banner) so the opportunity to work on something he’s devised himself must very alluring.
