VELVET REVOLVER and ex-GUNS N' ROSES guitarist Slash was interviewed on last night's (Monday, January 31) edition of "Lopez Tonight", comedian George Lopez's talk show on TBS. Slash also performed THE ROLLING STONES classic "Brown Sugar" with Michael Bearden and the "Lopez Tonight" house band, ESE VATOS. You can now watch video footage of his appearance below.Slash unveiled the first films to go into production from Slasher Films during a press conference last month at the Sundance Film Festival in Park City, Utah. One of the projects that the company is developing is "Wake The Dead", based on the comic book written by Steve Niles, who wrote the popular vampire comic "30 Days Of Night".
Slash described the project to Inside Movies, calling it "basically a modern, young Frankenstein story about a brilliant college student who's discovered how to animate dead tissue — but he's a teenager so he goes overboard."
The company has three other films in development, including "Nothing To Fear", about a town that sits on a gateway to hell; "Theorem", about a mathematician who figures out an equation for evil; and "The Other Kingdom", which is about a hospital struck by an epidemic that turns people into zombies.
Niles told the Los Angeles Times about working with Slash, "We want to recapture the quality of horror like they made them in the '70s, horror where you care about the characters and story . . . When (I) met with Slash we immediately connected on our love of horror and the way we wanted to see horror films made. I never dreamed in a million years I'd get to meet Slash, let alone work with him. I'm thrilled."
"Wake The Dead" will be jointly produced by Slash and Rob Eric of Scout Productions. Jay Russell ("Ladder 49") will direct, according to Collider.
