The third film of Tarsem Singh "Gods War: The Immortals" was launched recently at the box office, the fourth - "Mirror, mirror" â€“ will be released in March of 2012, and the director looks for material already for the fifth project. It will be a steampunk Killing on Carnival Row, which in 2006 was going to shoot Guillermo del Toro.
Killing on Carnival Row - a curious detective noir in the style of Steampunk. Travis Beacham wrote it before he became one of the writers' of Clash of the Titans. But it is to cope with the script for the new film Guillermo del Toro's "Pacific rim."
Beecham story is a mixture of the spirit of Neil Gaiman's novels and Tea Mevillya. In a world populated by human beings, fairies and other magical creatures, there is a city Burgi, similar to Victorian London. There lives and works detective Raykroft Philostratus. He tracks down the vampire who is suspected of murdering his mistress-fairy. On the part of the story seems a standard investigation, but a world in which Beauchamp settled his characters stand out from all the existing cinema world.
Del Toro was going to shoot Killing on Carnival Row, but the director gave light to the continuation of "Hellboy," so that steampunk of Travis Beecham has orphaned. Once it was interested in Neil Jordan, but nothing came of it. And only now the project has director.
The film's producers, Anne and Arnold Kopelson worked on it from the very beginning, when the project was based on the studios New Line.
Tarsus offered a range of paintings, including the history of the Venetian traveler Marco Polo, but Killing on Carnival Row became a director priority. Filming is already scheduled for June next year and will be held in New Orleans. In the near future Tarsus begins casting.
