If you've ever tried making your own low-budget feature film, then you've probably heard of Genevieve Jolliffe. She entered the Guiness Book of World Records in 1992 as the world's youngest film producer at the age of 20 for the film The Runner
The Runner was admittedly pretty poor, but it established the working relationship of Genevieve Jolliffe and Chris Jones, who together then wrote the hugely successful The Guerilla Film Maker's Handbook. The book sold in it's thousands, and GJ and CJ then went on to make two more low-budget films together under their production company Living Pictures, White Noise (not bad) and Urban Ghost Story (pretty good actually!).
Now it seems Genevieve has set up a new project wirh Andrew Zinnes at Warner Bros. called Absolute Angels with Genevieve attached to direct. The film has been described as a female take on 1987's The Lost Boys and follows a lonely goth girl who is invited to join the High School cheerleading team. When she joins, she inevitably finds out that the cheerleaders are actually a pack of vampires.
High School vampire cheerleaders you say? Sounds pretty good to us...
Mosaic Media's Charles Roven and Alex Gartner are producing. Karen Walton will do a quick rewrite on the project.
8th Jun 04 The film opens with a very similar voiceover narration to the original (see Trivia) but with different footage as we tour the furnace room, all fingernail scratches and blood-clotted hair, of the Hewitt residence.
