TEXAS CHAINSAW MASSACRE director Tobe Hooper is currently overseas in U.A.E. (United Arab Emirates) shooting DJINN, and a good deal more about its plot and some shots from the set have turned up.
The National, a Middle-East based news publication, has a set report on DJINN in which they spoke to German producer Daniela Tully and reveal the film is actually set in 2015 where Khaled and Salama, an Emirati couple, return home from the U.S. and find the titular forces invading their apartment.
Tully, who explains the film will be half-English and half-Arabic, also told the site that DJINN won’t be an explicitly gory piece of cinema. “There is not that much blood. It is more of a supernatural horror, rather than a thriller or slasher horror. It is a tale told with a lot of respect for the Emirati traditions and it will stay with you for a long time.”
Finally, as part of being respectful of U.A.E’s beliefs, no one on set is allowed to speak the word “djinn” as it’s thought the utterance could raise one.
Look for more on DJINN as news comes in!
