Your film Bunnyman 2
is presently in pre-production - in a few words,
what is it going to be about?
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?
will be better!
were your main inspirations for Bunnyman 2, specifically?
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.
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?
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?
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!
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.
you tell us about your (projected) cast as of now?
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!
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
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
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

will take you
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 :)
might still be far off, but when is Bunnyman 2
supposed to come
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
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?
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.
