We reported back in February that plans had been put in motion to adapt violent action comic PAINKILLER JANE for a movie outing. THR is now reporting that cult heroes Jen and Sylvia Soska have signed on to direct the film.
No specific details have been released as yet, but a posting by Sylvia on the twins’ Facebook page stated that it will feature “the Jane you know right off the pages being brought to life.” From this, we can presumably infer that the film will feature extreme violence, snarky dialogue and a badass gun-toting redhead wrapped in a scarlet leather trench coat and perpetually bloody bandages carving a relentless swathe of carnage through the criminal underworld.
After stunning and shocking the world with their grindhouse exploitation flick debut DEAD HOOKER IN A TRUNK, the self-styled Twisted Twins leapt into underground prominence with feminist horror (or if you believe them, romantic comedy) AMERICAN MARY. More recently, they have finished filming action vengeance film VENDETTA, while their slasher sequel SEE NO EVIL 2, starring genre favourites Katharine Isabelle and Danielle Harris, is to be released later in the year.
