Hans Rodionoff, one of the writers of last two Lost Boys movies, is set to direct a classic monster movie based on the old Horrsoft game "Waxworks." Yep, it'll have all the classic monsters: Mummy, Frankenstein's monster, zombies... and we've got the full scoop on the project including poster art, full synopsis, confirmed cast and concept art.

First, here's the synopsis:
There is a failing wax museum in the French Quarter of New Orleans. No one visits, the halls are silent. Inside, the wax figures exchange empty, lifeless glances. The proprietor, Marcus Laveau, knows that he needs to do something to reinvigorate the museum before he’s forced to close the museum doors forever.

Across town, a group of Beta Testers welcomes the opportunity to take a break from the never-ending stream of first person shooters and brawlers to go and visit the wax museum. Their task is to walk through the museum, look at the exhibits, and tell Laveau how he can make his wax museum appeal to a modern audience.

When the testers are shown into the Hall of Horrors, they immediately discern what the problem is... there are no modern monsters. No Freddy. No Jason. All of the monsters in the Hall of Horror are the classic creations of literature and folklore: the vampire, the werewolf, the mummy, zombies and Frankenstein’s monster. The testers claim that no one finds these monsters compelling any more.

Laveau believes differently. In fact, the reason these myths have endured for hundreds of years is because they speak to primal fears. The werewolf is the manifestation of the inner beast and uncontrolled rage. The vampire symbolizes the fear of sexually transmitted diseases and the perils of lust. These monsters are still relevant, as our beta testers will soon discover.

As each of the testers is drawn to the display that speaks to their own inner demons, they find themselves transported into the world of the waxworks. Now they must survive a series of thrilling encounters with the classic monsters of film.

Based on the hit video game ‘Waxworks’, Voodoo Museum is a Sci-Fi adventure that will transport the audience into visually striking worlds and introduce them to a modern interpretation of all the classic monsters.

Quiet Earth has learned the entire cast includes Ving Rhames (Piranha, Death Race 2) as museum owner Marcus Laveau, Jaime King (Sin City, My Bloody Valentine), Lauren McKnight (My Super Psycho Sweet 16), Julianna Guill (Altitude, Friday the 13th), Tim Jo (Speed Demons), Ryan Donawho (Blood Out, Altitude) and John Beach (Night of the Demons)

That's all for now. Check out some art after the break.
