The Grudge 2 had a trailer attached to it for Ghost House Picture’s first release for 2007, called The Messengers.
The thriller marks the U.S. directorial debut for Hong Kong wunderkind director-brothers Oxide and Danny Pang, known as The Pang Brothers (The Eye).
The Messengers involves an ominous darkness that invades a sunflower farm in North Dakota, tearing apart a family through suspicion, mayhem and murder. The film is due in February 2007, and stars Graham Bell, Robert Benz, John Corbett, Michael Daingerfield, William B. Davis, Dylan McDermott, Penelope Ann Miller, Dustin Milligan and Kristen Stewart.
The Pang Brothers will follow up The Messengers with the Nicolas Cage film Time to Kill, about a hitman (played by Cage) in Bangkok to pull off a series of jobs, who falls for a local woman. Filming on Time to Killis apparently on hold due to the recent military coup in Thailand.
Film Fetish Trivia: Danny Pang was the editor for Infernal Affairs, starring Andy Lau and Tony Leung, the film which is the basis for Martin Scorsese’s The Departed (The Departed, in this humble film lover’s opinion, is one of the best films in the last 10 years.)
