Vampire Western "High Midnight" loses funding

Fangoria, 1.21.11

Mary Lambert talks life after “MEGA PYTHON VS. GATOROID

It’s tough to follow up a film called MEGA PYTHON VS. GATOROID, but director Mary Lambert already has a few irons in the fire. The helmer of PET SEMATARY and its sequel, THE IN CROWD, THE ATTIC and SIESTA, waxed enthusiastic yesterday about her Syfy debut, which airs Saturday, January 29 at 9 p.m., and also spoke with us exclusively about her post-MEGA PYTHON future.

The outlandish Debbie Gibson/Tiffany-starrer (pictured below) has whetted Lambert’s taste for doing more science-fiction scare flicks. “I want to do another movie with creatures in it,” she tells Fango. “I really do. I had fun doing MEGA PYTHON VS. GATOROID, and I’m working on a script right now called THE RISING. It’s not exactly like MEGA PYTHON VS. GATOROID; it’s a little more of a thriller, less of a creature feature. It’s about alien lifeforms that come ashore in Hawaii, because I’ve been spending a lot of time there.”

...Lambert also reveals that HIGH MIDNIGHT, another vampire project she had previously been attached to, has stalled. The period horror/Western once slotted Vincent D’Onofrio, William Baldwin and GRIMM LOVE’s Thomas Kretschmann as topliners. “The producers weren’t able to get the money together,” she reveals. “It would be close, and then the funding would just fall apart, then get close and then fall apart again. We had a really good cast to star in it, and finally there wasn’t much I could do except fund it myself. I came from a farm in rural Arkansas. My daddy didn’t leave me money to fund my motion pictures [laughs].”
