Marcus Nispel Will Direct Hack/Slash

HeatVision reports that the horror comic book film Hack/Slash is finally moving out of limbo as Marcus Nispel (Pathfinder, Conan The Barbarian) has been hired to direct. The comic focuses on Cassie a girl who instead of being the cliched female survivor of a horror film, goes around hunting and killing slashers.

Nispel is an excellent choice as he's already taken on remakes of iconic horror classics including Texas Chainsaw Massacre and Friday The 13th. I personally really enjoyed Friday The 13th, as it was the best experience watching an American horror film in years. It will be interesting to see who will ultimately end up cast in the role of Cassie. At the time of it's original announcement Megan Fox had been rumored. I'm just hoping they end up hiring Derek Mears (Friday The 13th, Predators) for the role of hulking Vlad.
