Movie News: Offspring Sequel - The Woman

This one has really flown under the radar...it doesn't even have an IMDB page yet.  I'm a HUGE Jack Ketchum fan and I'm really excited for this.  Ketchum has been penning a book, The Woman, which picks up right where Offspring left off.  It will be released on hardcover in January 2011.

In addition, Lucky McKee has teamed up to work with Angela Bettis, Sean Bridgers, and Polyanna McIntosh on the movie version.  Now I wasn't the biggest fan of the movie version of Offspring but I loved the book  So I am looking forward to see how this particular movie turns out with some new drivers at the wheel.

Production begins next month in Massachusetts.  They actually had plans to shoot in the Offspring location of Muskegon, Michigan, but the state told them no freakin' way.

Here's the synopsis from Dread Central:

"The Woman is the last surviving member of a feral clan that has roamed the Northeast Coast for decades. When the last of her family is killed in a battle with the police, The Woman finds herself alone, severely wounded and vulnerable. Unfortunately, she is now a far too easy prey for local hunter, successful country lawyer and seriously disturbed family man Christopher Cleek. With his twisted set of ideals, Cleek decides to embark upon a deranged project - to capture her and "break" The Woman - a decision that will soon threaten the lives of Cleek, his family and The Woman."

More to come as filming begins!
