MESSAGE FROM DOUGIE
MOVIE ANNOUNCEMENT ... FINALLY!
I Playing "Slenderman"?????
I've been hinting for some months
now that I filmed a "secret project" over the
summer. The feature film was actually announced in Daily
Variety back in February 2013, but my involvement has been
a well-kept secret .... until Yesterday's official Halloween
announcement (link below).
Many of you have been speculating
that I might be playing the internet folklore legend "Slenderman"
.... well, not exactly.
So here's the "skinny"
A movie version of the internet
web series hit MARBLE HORNETS (60+ Million hits
on YouTube) is now in post production by Mosaic Media Group
(who brought you everything from ELF and GET
SMART to TALLADEGA NIGHTS, STEP BROTHERS, LAND
OF THE LOST, and a host of others!) with Mosaic's legendary
Jimmy Miller producing. The feature film version of MARBLE
HORNETS has a working title of THE OPERATOR,
and yes, I am indeed playing "The Operator" ...
a character who is inspired by the iconic "Slenderman",
but we are not calling him "Slenderman," we are
calling him "The Operator."
The Operator is
similar in look to Slenderman, and absolutely inspired
by him, even to the point that the Slenderman creator
and rights holders are on board with their blessing and
contractual credit ... BUT ... The Operator is
different in that he does not have tree branch hands, nor
does he abduct children into the forest, as the Slenderman
legend goes. The Operator has his own, unique powers,
motivations, look, and agenda that you have 70-some episodes
of MARBLE HORNETS to familiarize yourselves with
before our feature film hits your local theater sometime
later in 2014.
I was a fan of the MARBLE
HORNETS web series already, so when I got a tweet on
the Twitter from one of the web series creators, Tim Sutton,
asking if I'd want to be involved, I got very excited at
the chance! But we held off on me joining the web series,
as the feature film deal with Mosaic Media Group was in
This movie is directed by
James Moran, who I had already worked with on QUARANTINE.
His love of this character, and his brilliant sensibilities
in bringing nail-biting suspense to the big screen will
totally satisfy you! I'm so proud to be a part of this horrifying
The creators (and writers,
directors, producers, actors) of the MARBLE HORNETS
web series are all followable on Twitter: Tim Sutton @FlamingButtWind
; Troy Wagner @whatatroy ; Joseph DeLage III @GeauxJoe .
So HERE is that official
announcement with a photo from the film set, found on Marble
Hornets' co-creator Troy
Very Excited, and THERE'S
LOVE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! -- Dougie
