Joe Dante Directs Bat Out of Hell

Joe Dante (“Gremlins,” “Small Soldiers”) will direct the indie horror project “Bat Out of Hell” for Parallel Zide and VooDoo Productions says Variety.

AICN contributors Drew McWeeny and Scott Swan penned the script which centers on a red-eye flight from L.A. to New York during which hijackers confront the monstrous cargo.

Shooting is expected to begin later this year.
