Rotenburg Cannibal comes to stage & screen
EXCLUSIVE: Fans of Stuart Gordon’s cannibal play should save room for a big-screen version. The RE-ANIMATOR director recently signed on to direct TASTE, a Los Angeles-based play based on the real-life Rotenburg Cannibal, Armin Meiwes, and will shoot a feature version late next year after its first run. Meiwes made headlines around the world when he killed and ate a willing victim he found on the internet. Gordon is currently talking to cast for the play and will use the same thesps for his feature. Gordon’s 1985 horror pic “Re-Animator,” based on a story by H.P. Lovecraft, later turned into a trilogy and a musical.
