Bringing you the best in Horror Movie News, and all things Horror.
The genie in a bottle concept is one that most of us have grown up hearing about. The idea of having wishes granted is a powerful wonder. The 1997 film WISHMASTER took that notion and ran with it full speed focusing on an evil entity who is released from a jewel and seeks to capture the soul of the woman who discovered him, thereby opening a portal and freeing his fellow djinn to inhabit the earth.
A new film is now in the works which takes the wish granting concept and plans to add dark elements just like WISHMASTER did. While it is not an official WISHMASTER redo, the film will be titled WISH UPON and will be steered by director Catherine Hardwicke of TWILIGHT fame.
WISH UPON is about:
"a 16-year-old girl who finds a magic box that promises to grant her seven wishes, but with each wish comes dark and gruesome consequences."
Producing WISH UPON will be Broad Green Pictures and Busted Shark Productions. Barbara Marshall is in charge of writing the script.
We will continue to bring you more on WISH UPON as we hear it.
