Having spent years working in TV, I know one universal truth about projects “in development”–there’s a 99% chance that they’ll never see the light of day.
Still, when Hollywood Rag reports that Bai Ling is set to star in Hydrophobia, a famous director’s horror flick (Currently, ah, still in development), as a “sexy femme fatale who lures both men and women into the pool, appearing as a sexy vixen at first who then morphs into an Alien-like creature with razor-sharp piranha teeth capable of opening her mouth as wide as a python to bite a man’s head off,” I get interested quick. Damn quick.
Sure, it sounds inconceivable. Maybe a little stupid. Maybe a little fake. But perhaps Hydrophobia simply seems like a film that won’t ever happen because it’s too good to be true.
Frankly, I’d like to see this film next year, and I believe the rest of you do as well. We are talking about Bai Ling as an Alien-like creature with razor-sharp piranha teeth, for chrissake, and that’s good shit that shouldn’t live in theory. The concept is so crazy that it could work. And Bai Ling is so crazy that she can do that work. Which leads me to one incredible conclusion:
Um, okay, so I’m not exactly sure how this discovery factors into the unemployment crisis, but I feel like I should send this scientific research to a czar somewhere.
