At the invitation of Paramount Pictures, CinePOP was the ONLY SITE IN BRAZIL to interview the cast of the new “ Panic, ” which opens on January 13, 2022.
In the video below, publisher Renato Marafon shares what stars he had the opportunity to speak to, in addition to publicizing the first photos and the national logo.
The saga has become known for its metalanguage and for deconstructing horror films in a smart and clever way, thus becoming an autopody of slasher films. However, the formula has worn off in recent years and the new film in the saga will take on a more serious and realistic look, leaving parody aside to bet on terror.
At least, that’s what producer Kevin Williamson, who created the franchise alongside Wes Craven, has revealed.
“The new film will not be deconstructed. There won’t be as much metalanguage. We’ll just do the opposite of what we did in the first four movies. I was worried the franchise would run out with all the metalanguage and deconstruction that we’ve done of the genre. Since then, many people have made horror films in the same style.
According to him, the new film will be “innovative and nostalgic”.
“What I liked the most about the new ‘Panic’ script is that it brings an innovative approach. It’s a new movie, but there are also some nostalgic elements. To me, that’s the perfect balance of what the next movie in the franchise should look like. That’s why I’m really excited about the new movie. I was impressed with the directors and I was very nervous because no one is like Wes Craven. I hesitated to participate in the project, but I am happy to have accepted it. I believe they will make Wes proud.
The film is directed by Matthew Bettinelli-Olpin and Tyler Gillett (Ready or Not) and will bring a new generation of promising Hollywood actors, including Jack Quaid (The Boys), Jenna Ortega (You) and Melissa Barrera (Vida), who already are confirmed in the cast.
Kevin Williamson will be the producer.
The film is distributed by Paramount Pictures and produced by Radio Silence.
The franchise’s first film debuted in 1996 and became an instant, groundbreaking classic that mixed elements of slasher terror with cinematic metalanguage. Directed by Wes Craven and scripted by Kevin Williamson, the plot focused on a masked serial killer known as Ghostface, who used slogans and creepy knowledge of genre productions to pursue his victims.
Together, the four iterations have raised more than $ 608 million at the global box office.
Paramount Pictures is launching “Panic” in Brazil on January 13, 2022, the day before the North American debut.
