Dear Mr. Big Shot Hollywood Movie Maker,
Please explain to me what freakin' sense it makes to have released Sins of Man : Rise of Mortis in 2015, Sins of Man II : Vengeance in 2016 then release another film in 2017 only to turn around and release Sins of Man III two years after Vengeance in 2018 ? I think it's a waste of time, as a fan I want to see the conclusion of the trilogy in 2017.
You answered your own question really, we are talking about shuffling Sins of Man III to 2018 because we want to build a desirefor fans to see the final chapter of the trilogy. On the other hand we also want to keep busy and have several projects ready to shoot that we would fill the 2017 slot with either a one off film (the likely choice being Wicked Carnival) or the start of another series .
It's like the old expression says "Don't put all your eggs in one basket" (Thanks Nana) Wicked Carnival Productions doesn't want to tie ourselves to a single trilogy or series early on by which all our other films will be judged. Which begs the question why start the company by launching a film trilogy ? Why not !?!
You have to remember Sins of Man was originally supposed to be a one off film as I never planned on doing a sequel because I feel strongly that sequels killed the slasher genre in the 80's . Once I stated writing Sins of Man, I knew I could make a sequel that would tell the whole story in two films (much like Rob Zombie's Halloween films told the complete story arch in two films) but as I was writing Sins of Man II (not titled vengeance yet) I started thinking about writing not an unneeded sequel but the concluding chapter of a trilogy (a rarity in the horror field but it does exist i.e. Scream)
We very well decide after the release of Sins of Man II : Vengeance to go ahead and start preproduction on Sins of Man III for release in 2017, we might decide push it back on the schedule to release Wicked Carnival or launch another film it's really all up in the air at this point .
We are looking into as many options as possible with the resources we have to work with. I know we have some big things planned for Sins of Man II : Vengeance as well as Sin of Man III STAY TUNED !!
STAY HUMBLE, STAY HUNGRY MY FRIENDS :)
