Puppet Master reboot gets a director
Rumours have been swirling for a while now that a Puppet Master reboot is in the works, and now the director's chair has been filled. Fresh off his horror-western masterpiece Bone Tomahawk (2015), S. Craig Zahler will be looking to reinvigorate the long running franchise. Considering the huge impact he's made with only one film behind him, I find it a little odd that he would choose to take on a reboot (of a series with no less than 10 entries!) but I'm guessing that he must already be a fan.
As you can see from the poster, the film already has a title and a distinct Nazisploitation approach (following on from the previous 2 entries) which makes me wonder if this will really be a reboot or just another sequel. We'll find out, when the project finally surfaces
Do you want to see an 11th Puppet Master film? Would you rather Zahler direct original projects?
