When Sharktopus came out, many people laughed at the idea of a shark and octopus being made into some hybrid monster, but by gum it worked! Now a actual production company is taking the idea of hybrid animals to the big screen. Check out the details below.
The co-producers of Sharktopus, Dinoshark and Shark Swarm – Stephen Niver and Robert James Roessel – have founded Monster Machine and this production branch will throw out a slew of awesome creature features we know you love. Arachnaconda, Grizzligator, Sea Scorpions and Maneater Mountain. Our type of flicks!
Shark Swarm team David Rosiak and Matthew Chernov will develop the films with Monster Machine; most of the projects will come in around the $1-3 million range. So they will be low budget but still semi watchable…awesome!
Arahnaconda is the first rolling into production with Lou Diamond Phillips, Maria Conchita Alonso and Brett Wagner starring. We reported on this awhile back, glad they are moving things forward.
More as it develops.
