There was a period in horror history when killer snakes, crocs, and other scaly creatures ruled the box office. That golden era of creature features has been over for some time now. But between Alexandre Aja’s upcoming alligator movie Crawl and a recently announced giant snake movie, perhaps it isn’t safe to go back into the water quite yet.
Here’s what we know so far about said giant snake movie: an action-comedy, it will centre around the Titanoboa (aka the Titanic Boa), a creature that actually existed in Columbia about sixty million years ago. These snakes weighed more than a ton and could reach 40ft. Anaconda, eat your heart out.
Resident Evil franchise producers Jeremy Bolt and Robert Kulzer will be producing the flick, which is currently untitled, with Tony Giglio (writer and director of the upcoming Doom: Annihilation) penning the script.
The film is slated to begin shooting in 2020, so it won’t be slithering onto our screens anytime soon—but we can’t wait to see if this one will be a hiss or a miss.
