Why just shoot one film, when two is twice as nice?
Ti West–the filmmaker behind The House of the Devil–has his latest horror flick, X, landing in theaters this Friday, March 18, but (believe it or not) he’s already filmed the prequel, according to a report on comicbook.com.
This prequel–Pearl–stars Mia Goth, who also plays two roles in X (the porn star Maxine and an elderly woman named Pearl). Goth also co-wrote the prequel with West.
Both A24 features were shot in New Zealand–with Pearl currently in post-production–and used mostly the same crew to save time. Pearl does not yet have a release date, but a teaser indicated it was “coming soon.”
X–starring Goth, Brittany Snow, Scott Mescudi, Jenna Ortega, Martin Henderson, Owen Campbell and Stephen Ure–follows a group of young filmmakers in 1979 who “set out to make an adult film in rural Texas,” according to the logline. “But when their reclusive, elderly hosts catch them in the act, the cast has to fight for their lives.”
