Mortuary: According to Fangoria, director Tobe Hooper, who directed the original The Texas Chainsaw Massacre and Poltergeist, is about to take on a zombie project. The director spoek at the Philadelphia Film Festival where he was screening his new film, Toolbox Murders...

At the Philadelphia Film Festival for a screening of his new shocker TOOLBOX MURDERS, Tobe Hooper revealed that his next movie will be a zombie opus called MORTUARY. The project will reunite him with TOOLBOX producer Tony Didio and screenwriters Adam Gierasch and Jace Anderson, who scripted TOOLBOX as well as the director’s previous CROCODILE. As MORTUARY (which, for the record, has nothing to do with the early-’80s film of the same name featuring Bill Paxton) is going forward, Hooper’s BREW project has been put on the back burner for now.
