James Watkins, who's already impressed with the likes of EDEN LAKE and THE WOMAN IN BLACK is moving on to one of the world's most infamous monsters, Nessie.
Screen Daily reports that Watkins will co-write THE LOCH alongside Simon Duric, who will eventually helm. The first film planned under producer Will Clarke's newly established Altitude Entertainment, THE LOCH is said to be "a new take on the Loch Ness Monster myth." Clarke said, “He’s not just in the horror genre, he’s got an intelligent approach to narrative and he’s very commercial minded in terms of the way he tells stories as a screenwriter and also as a director, and now as a producer.”
Fairly condescending comment aside (intelligent approach to narrative exists in horror, Mr. Clarke), the notion of a well done Nessie movie is certainly exciting. Duric is best known for his art and storyboard work, and previously collaborated on EDEN LAKE with Watkins.
Hopefully, THE LOCH proves to be as compelling as the Nessie gets divorced plot in this Reggie & The Full Effect video from 2005.
