Could This Be The Worst Film Ever? (Empire)
Paris Hilton is set to star in a musical about organ failure in the future. It shall be called Repo! The Genetic Opera! and it shall come to a screen near you in April 2008. The plot, according to the press release:
"Set in the not-so-distant future, the production tells the story of an epidemic of organ failures that devastates the planet, killing tens of millions. As scientists feverishly make plans for a massive organ harvest program, a multi-billion dollar biotech company called GeneCo begins to manufacture salvation — for a price — offering simple payment plans to those lacking the necessary funds to purchase new body parts outright. But all financed organs are subject to default procedures, including repossession at the hand of the notorious organ repo men."
Like an autistic Moulin Rouge in the clutches of a savage night terror.
This can only be awful... Right? Or maybe I'm wrong. Perhaps the director is a visionary auteur aiming to claim the horror musical as his own? Perhaps this is a man with the foresight of a pre-Star Wars IV George Lucas?
The director is Darren Lynn Bousman, the director of Saw II and Saw III.
Awful it is then.
