In a story from Heat Vision, Darren Lynn Bousman (Repo! the Genetic Opera!) is teaming with producer Wayne Rice for the horror-tinged thriller titled 11 11 11.

It will be released Friday, November 11, 2011 or 11-11-11.

The 11:11 movement focuses on the emergence of that number within people's lives. It alerts them to angels or spirit guardians that try to communicate with them. Conspiracy theorists like to point to the number 11's involvement in historical events.

Rice discussed how he picked Bousman for this project.

"He and I sat down and over some pasta, (and) the movie materialized," Rice stated. "A lot of this has been New Age-y or biblical, with talk of angels. Leave it to Darren to see the dark side of that date."

Bousman is presently writing 11 11 11. The film will take on the idea of 11 gates of Heaven and how on 11:11 on the 11th day of the 11th month, the 11th gate is going to open up "and something from another world will enter the earthly realm for 49 minutes."

"With Saw and Repo, my career has been about finding new ways to freak people out; that's what I want to do with this," Bousman offered. "We want to take this phenomenon and give it horrific purpose."
