‘Conan The Barbarian’ Director Marcus Nispel’s Next Film: ‘Backmask’

Marcus NispelMarcus Nispel — the man we can all collectively point and groan at for this — has signed on for his next film: a little $10 million picture called Backmask set to shoot this summer. Right now, details are still wrapped regarding the project, but Deadline reports that it involves “paranoia, possession and the paranormal.” Nispel’s past credits include The Texas Chainsaw Massacre and Friday the 13th remakes, and the picture will be produced by Steven Schneider, one of the backers of Paranormal Activity; so, yeah, we’re pretty sure that this will be spooky. Either that, or a really low-budget stoner flick about ghosts who wear gas mask bongs.
