Producer Wayne Rice and filmmaker Darren Lynn Bousman (several “Saw” sequels, “Repo! The Genetic Opera”) are teaming for “11 11 11”, a horror-tinged take on the 11:11 spiritual movement reports Heat Vision.
The theory/movement deals with the number’s significance in people’s lives, specifically its appearance alerting people that angels/guardians are trying to communicate with them. As November 11th 2011 is a Friday, the film’s release date is already locked for that date.
The script, which Bousman is currently penning, takes the idea that Heaven at 11:11am on that date, the last of Heaven’s eleven gates will open and something from another world will enter our earthly realm. Oddly enough it’ll be here not for 11 minutes but 49 minutes.
The tone is said to be akin to “Signs” and “The Strangers” (atmospheric rather than gory), and desperately wants to avoid comparisons to Jim Carrey flop “The Number 23” which dealt with similar wild numerology theories.
