Troy Nixey is ready to build some SIMPLE MACHINES
Troy Nixey and co-producer buddy Nick Nunziata are only two weeks into the 45-day shoot of DON'T BE AFRAID OF THE DARK, Nixey's directorial debut, and they have already announced their next project together. They will team up for SIMPLE MACHINES, an original film based on a script Nixey himself penned. Variety is reporting that it is a family film that centers around an inventor who must try to prevent one of his creations from being used to cause all kinds of trouble by a mad man.
Nunziata is one of the founders of the website CHUD.com and had this to say about the movie:
This has been coming together for quite a few years, dozens of drafts, amazing conceptual artwork and pre-viz efforts and it is a visionary and deeply affecting story Troy has imagined. Watching the project evolve and Troy develop as a filmmaker has been astonishing. His work on Don't Be Afraid of the Dark has already turned heads and Simple Machines is something he's been filming in his head for quite some time and I have no doubt that audiences will soon be adding his name to the list of filmmakers whose work is absolutely unmissable. You look at the rest of the team, folks coming off of working with David Fincher and Martin Scorsese... yeah, this is a film folks can start looking forward to.
I'm actually very interested to hear more about this movie. It seems original and fun. What do you think about the outcome of this film? Let me know in the comments!
