crispinglover.jpgProduction Weekly reports cult film legend and author Crispin Glover will star in a forthcoming film about the Donner Party.

The film, called The Forlorn, is in development and will co-star Jeremy Sisto (Law & Order). NHO Entertainment is producing.

If this news doesn’t make your hair stand up, there are three things you should know.

1. Crispin Glover is a force of nature. Not nature as we understand it, but nature in some frightening alternate universe populated by giant mutant kittens and crayfish. You may also know him as George McFly from Back to the Future, Grendel from 2007’s Beowulf and Willard from .. uh … Willard.

2. The Donner Party was a group of California-bound settlers that got trapped in the Sierra Nevada range in 1846. They ran out of food and started eating their oxen … then each other. As consolation, they named a mountain pass after ‘em. Woo-hoo!

3. NHO Entertainment should bring an interesting perspective to this gloomy tale. The company is also developing a live-action adaptation of the ’80s anime series Voltron and the hard-boiled graphic novel Brodie’s Law.

No release date has been announced, but I’m awaiting this film with bated breath. And here’s the kicker: the IMDB claims Glover “is a strict vegetarian.”
