The Dead Gentlemen announce their "secret project", an Army of Darkness-style reboot/sequel of their Demon Hunters series. The unkillable demon was banished back to Hell, while two misfit Demon Hunters close the gate to Hell from the inside. Now, 15 years later, there might be a way out...
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
August 5, 2016
Dead Gentlemen Productions announces their latest feature film project tentatively titled Demon Hunters: Hell Yeah.
BELLINGHAM, WA – On August 5, 2016, Dead Gentlemen Productions announced their latest film, Demon Hunters: Hell Yeah. Much like Army of Darkness in Sam Raimi’s Evil Dead franchise, the project will be a restructured, spiritual successor to the Demon Hunters property originating in their college films Demon Hunters and Demon Hunters: Dead Camper Lake.
“We are so energized to bring the world of Demon Hunters back on screen,” said Don Early, Producer. “The movie will stand on its own, and serve as a foundation for future Demon Hunters projects. That said, we wanted to find a way to not only continue the story we started so long ago, but also draw from movies like Army of Darkness & Nightmare on Elm Street 3: Dream Warriors as memorable, enjoyable films without needing to know their previous films.”
The project, currently in pre-production, will star Nathan Rice as Gabriel, a disgraced leader of the Demon Hunters, and Steve Wolbrecht as Chris, the reluctant Demon Hunters recruit. Matt Vancil will pen the script, and Don Early will direct the film. No dates have been set to begin filming, but a crowdfunding campaign is set to begin in early 2017 to help fund the film.
WHO ARE THE DEMON HUNTERS? Since the most ancient days of the world, the forces of evil have gathered minions of all kinds to wreak havoc on the mortal plane. Heaven’s answer was to form an organization of warriors who fight to prevent Hell on Earth. They are the Brotherhood of the Celestial Torch, better known as Demon Hunters.
Demon Hunters and Demon Hunters: Dead Camper Lake are cult-hit films by Dead Gentlemen Productions, creators of The Gamers and its sequel, The Gamers: Dorkness Rising. Demon Hunters has also found success as a web comic and most recently as an RPG filled with action and horror, brought together with off-kilter humor.
DEAD GENTLEMEN PRODUCTIONS began in 1999 with the production of Demon Hunters. Based on that film’s success, they went on to shoot a sequel, Dead Camper Lake, and followed up with The Gamers, Revamping Doyle, House Rulez, The Gamers: Dorkness Rising, Demon Hunters: Orientation Video, two editions of the Demon Hunters RPG, and a Demon Hunters online comic.
