Angry Little God

Mark Webber

According to Variety, Mark Webber (Scott Pilgrim vs The World, The End of Love) is in talks to star in Daniel Stamm‘s (The Last Exorcism) remake of 13: Game of Death. With the prospect of getting a shiny new lead, the movie has been picked up by Dimension Films and is being called Angry Little God. Stamm is an exciting new talent that delivered a great twist on found footage and exorcisms, but its his first film – A Necessary Death – that really proves how incendiary his vision is. The movie he’ll be remaking came from Thailand (and was distributed by Dimension Extreme appropriately enough). It features a young man who answers his phone and is drawn slowly into a violent game show which tests his personal and ethical limits. As previously mentioned – it’s a flick whose themes will mesh well with American sensibilities, particularly the joy of “real people” becoming celebrities and/or doing outrageous things for money. With Webber, the project now has an excellent anchor. Unfortunately, the danger with Dimension is that they could see it to the finish line only to place it on a shelf and dust it off every so often. Let’s cross our fingers that this one has the freedom to make it to theaters in all its twisted glory.
