Almost a month ago, Terry Marcel confirmed that he was developing a sequel to the cult classic film Hawk the Slayer, entitled Hawk the Hunter (here). This was a massive announcement for fans of the original, but since then, things have gone relatively quiet.
However, that all changed today in an article released by The Guardian. In said article, Marcel announces that they are receiving funding from Rebellion Games (who will also be developing a video game to tie-in with the film). However, this still only brings the budget to $5 million.
In an attempt to raise some more money for the film, it was also announced that after the screening of the original film at the London Frightfest in August, a Kickstarter will be launched. As if this all wasn’t enough, Marcel announced that he also had the intentions to develop a TV series, which he called, “the third part of the trilogy”. He also stated, that he believed it could run for five seasons.
I will be perfectly honest, I have never seen Hawk the Slayer; though, given this information, I may very well se it in the near future. Marcel does seem to have a great deal planned out, and for all the fans of this cult favourite, I hope he can see it through.
