Scott Spiegel, known for his roles in Hollywood as a screenwriter, director, producer and actor, has been confirmed as the executive producer for its upcoming fantasy motion picture ‘Welcome to Purgatory’. Our very own TONY COOK (who has also co-written the project with Marcus Ako) will be producing the film for Cupsogue Pictures alongside Gene Fallaize.
Spiegel, who is best known for co-writing ‘Evil Dead II’ (1987) with director Sam Raimi, producing ‘Hostel’ (2005) with Eli Roth, and directing ‘Hostel: Part III’ (2011), will executive- produce the picture, which stars Nathan Jones (‘Troy’, ‘Mad Max: Fury Road’), Jack O’Halloran (‘Superman’, ‘King Kong’), Tory Kittles (‘Olympus Has Fallen’, ‘Next’) and Stephen Marcus (‘Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels’, ‘Quills’). TONY COOK will also be playing the role of Taylor and will be directed by British director Gene Fallaize.
Spiegel, who often works with Sam Raimi, Eli Roth and Bruce Campbell, is also notable for introducing his friend Quentin Tarantino to producer Lawrence Bender resulting in ‘Reservoir Dogs’ (1992) getting made.
‘Welcome to Purgatory’ follows three new arrivals – Willis, Taylor and Danni – as they navigate this fresh vision of the Afterlife, helped along the way by trusty Guardian Paul. They find the afterlife in ruins amidst a growing war between Good and Evil. All the rules of the Afterlife have been broken, both pain and pleasure can be experienced, and death here may not be final, but it leads directly to the Seventh Circle of Hell, Lucifer’s very own domain, and they must find a way to make things right, before Heaven is ruined for the rest of time.
Filming is due to commence on ‘Welcome to Purgatory’ at the end of 2013 at Pinewood Studios, England, ahead of a theatrical release in 2014.
