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.

My name is James and I am a long time fan of Movies, TV and Comics. I am currently a student, wrapping up my education at Aberystwyth University. I have an undergraduate degree in film and television and I’m working on my Masters in scriptwriting. My personal favourite comic character is the Green Lantern (Hal Jordan), and I view the film adaptation as one of the most horrifying experiences I have had in a movie theatre. As far as film and television go, I am usually willing to give any genre a try, as long as the project is well executed.
