The Haunting of Whaley House writer and director Jose Prendes has announced that his next film will be the serial killer mind-bender The Divine Tragedies.
The story is based loosely on the famous Leopold and Loeb murder case of 1924 and focuses on Charles Brubaker, played by Graham Denman (The Haunting of Whaley House) and his half-brother Thomas Lo Bianco, played by Jon Kondelik (Airplane Vs. Volcano), who concoct a deadly game to test their superior intelligence against the dimwitted masses. The game eventually leads to murder, and when Genevieve, a beautiful single mother, enters the brothers’ lives, she becomes the perfect target for their first kill. However, their game begins to become difficult when a detective called Homer Gaul, a cop with a very special gift, has his eye on them.
When asked about his film, Prendes said this: “It’s a serial killer film, but unlike anything you’ve ever seen before. I know people always say that, but I really think the film will back me up. It’s American Psycho meets Videodrome, by way of John Carpenter. I wanted to make something that would really surprise people. Not just in a gory way, which is easy, but in a beautiful way. The same way a David Lynch movie can be beautiful and surprising.”
The film is being produced by Jon Kondelik & James Kondelik, under their production company Dual Visions. The Divine Tragedies is the company’s first of many feature films to come.
Producers Jon Kondelik and James Kondelik also commented on the serial killer film: “Dual Visions aims to produce feature films that engage an audience with unique experiences. People won’t be able to forget the things they’ve seen after watching this film.”
Filming for The Divine Tragedies is due to commence at the end of February.
