In the world of cinema, where each film is like birthing a new baby, producer Zainab Azizi has just successfully delivered her latest creation, “Boy Kills World,” which made its global debut at the Toronto International Film Festival’s Midnight Madness showcase. But, as the applause and excitement settle, Azizi is already gearing up for her next ventures. While her collaboration with “Boy Kills World” director Moritz Mohr is temporarily on hold, Azizi has exciting plans on the horizon, including partnerships with two notable horror directors, Rob Savage and Corin Hardy. In an interview with FilmSweep’s Perri Nemiroff, Azizi shared insights into what audiences can expect from these thrilling collaborations.
As the buzz around Mohr’s “Boy Kills World” continues to grow, it’s only a matter of time before the film gets its theatrical release date. However, for the film’s stars, life in the spotlight doesn’t stop there. During her conversation with Nemiroff, Azizi revealed that she’ll soon be working alongside two of the film’s leading actors. “We have another movie in development with Andrew Koji, and the next film, which we’re set to shoot in Vancouver, will also feature Bill Skarsgård, so we’ll be teaming up with Bill again,” she teased without spilling more details about these upcoming titles.
One topic Azizi was happy to shed more light on was her upcoming collaboration with Rob Savage. “I actually have three movies with Rob, though only one has been officially announced,” Azizi divulged, sending ripples of excitement through the cinephile community. She went on to reminisce about her discovery of Savage before he became a household name in horror cinema. “You know, it’s funny,” she mused, “I stumbled upon him before he made any of his feature films. He created those captivating short films, and he was absolutely brilliant. But then, Blumhouse swooped in and produced his films lightning-fast, including titles like ‘Dashcam.'” Azizi couldn’t help but express her admiration for Savage’s talents, assuring audiences that his upcoming works would be more akin to the spine-chilling horror of “Boogeyman” rather than the tense atmosphere of “Host” or the intense found footage of “Dashcam.”
Moving on to another exciting figure in the horror genre, Colin Hardy, known for his directorial debut with “The Hallow” in 2015 and his subsequent work on “The Nun” in 2018, which is part of “The Conjuring” series. With five years having passed since the release of “The Nun,” fans have been eagerly awaiting news of Hardy’s next project. Azizi offered some reassuring words, saying, “We are working on it. He’s currently shooting a film in Toronto right now, and we are hoping that this film, ‘Every House is Haunted,’ will be the next one for next year.”
So, as the curtain falls on “Boy Kills World,” Zainab Azizi is poised for a thrilling encore in the world of cinema, promising horror, suspense, and cinematic wonders in the company of acclaimed directors Rob Savage and Colin Hardy. Moviegoers and fans of the genre can undoubtedly look forward to an exciting lineup of films in the near future.
