Your film Bunnyman 2 is presently in pre-production - in a few words, what is it going to be about?

 

Bunnyman 2 continues the story of Joe (the crazy redneck we briefly see in part 1) and Bunnyman. In some ways it's about their relationship, and what they like to do in their free time :) In all the countless Friday the 13th- and Nightmare on Elm Street-sequels, we are always introduced to new "teenagers" that are killed. I couldn't tell you one teenager from another in any of those films, just what Jason or Freddy did, his kills, and whatever fleeting moments of backstory that was hinted at. So I feel, since I went that route with part 1, why not tell a horror sequel from the antagonist's point of view. To actually have a film about Bunnyman, instead of his victims. In other words, I would love a Jason or Freddy film from their point of view, instead of just watching asinine characters on screen, waiting for Freddy to show up.

 

In what ways will Bunnyman 2 differ from the first Bunnyman?

 

It will be better!

 

What were your main inspirations for Bunnyman 2, specifically?

 

We learned a lot from our mistakes from part 1, and we wanted to apply those lessons in the sequel. I also feel there is a story to continue with the Bunnyman, and I felt he was a interesting character.

 

How do you plan to approach Bunnyman 2 on a directorial level, and will it differ vastly from the first film stylistically or rather remain in tone to give the series a consistent overall look?

 

Throughout the development process, we tried to place Bunnyman in different types of settings, such as a circus etc. However, these characters really fit best in rural, backwoods-type environments. Since I am again producing and directing the film, I'm trying to spend more time with the actors, and be more in the "creative" mindset, as opposed to the "buisness" mindset which is producing and worrying about the logistics of the shoot. In regards to tone, the film will be more gritty, and more violent. There will still be the absurd moment of dark humor, which I think we are really pushing the limits on.

 

Between part 1 and 2, have you changed the Bunnyman-costume in any way?

 

Yes, that was a mistake I made in part 1. The Bunnyman-costume will be much more worn out, much dirtier, and no more stupid big white fluffy bunny feet!

 

Anything you can tell us yet about the level of violence and gore you try to achieve in Bunnyman 2?

 

I just counted the amount of deaths in the film, we have 23 people die in the film, plus a few other surprises that ratchet up that number even higher.

 


The first Bunnyman did not give away too much of a background story on its titular character (which isn't essentially a bad thing). Will there be more of the bunnyman's past revealed in Bunnyman 2?

 

I plan to have more Super 8 footage hinting at Bunnyman's past. However, it's not something I really feel is necessary. I think the mystery is more interesting than any backstory I would come up with.

 

What can you tell us about your (projected) cast as of now?

 

I went through 100's of actors, auditions, call backs etc. I'm still locking down cast members right now, however the cast is comprised of all hot chicks, so there's plenty of eye candy!

 

The first Bunnyman put quite an emphasis on chainsaw murders, but from what I've heard, you are planning to put other tools to good use in Bunnyman 2 as well. Would you like to elaborate on that?

 

Well, let's put it this way, there are more gruesome ways to kill someone than using a chainsaw :)

 

According to my information, you have just done some location-scouting for Bunnyman 2 ... so yeah, what can you tell us about the film, location-wise?

 

As cliché as it sounds, it's bigger and better. It's more rural, there's more "junk", more decay. Larger sets, more expansive than the previous film. There's a old western town we're shooting at, so we will play up the Old West-theme to some extent. Although some scenes take place in a forest, the majority of the film takes place in a decaying ranch.

We're also shooting the forest scenes on a Indian burial ground, so I'm sure that we'll have stories with that. I've already heard some strange things in the woods, and taunting the Indian spirits/ghosts with a giant white bunnyman killing screaming girls in the woods will probably piss them off. I will let you know :)

 

It might still be far off, but when is Bunnyman 2 supposed to come out?

 

Early summer of 2012.

 

With Bunnyman 2 not even in the can yet, it might be too early to ask, but could you ever be tempted to make Bunnyman 3, and what would it be like?

 

To be honest, yes I am tempted. I still want to put Bunnyman in a run down old circus setting, not sure how well that will fit the established asthetics of part 1 and 2 though.

 

Any future projects after Bunnyman 2?

 

Yes, but at the moment I am just trying to survive part 1 :)

 

Anything else you are dying to tell us that I have merely forgotten to ask?

 

Bunnyman 2 will be better in every possible way then part 1. Please give it a shot, everyone is doing their best on the project to make it the best possible film. It's a labor of love for all that are involved.

 

Thanks for the interview!
