Snider's 'Strangeland 2' Back on Track
January 31, 2007 -- Dee Snider lost rights to his "Strangeland" film for a time, but now has them back -- and it looks like Lionsgate will be releasing the sequel. Snider told a Web site that a sequel to "Strangeland" is finally in the works. Asked what we would see first, "Strangeland 2" or "Chinese Democracy" (GNR's always in-development next alubm), he said: "Hahahahaha! That's GOOD! That's fucking GOOD! Oh, that is GOOD! You're right, I've been talking about that fucking project for as long as Axl! And you just made me realize it! Oh, man! That is fucking good. Back at ya, Snider! I will have to call myself out on that in my podcast. In my defense, I do have an excuse! The U.S. government seized the property and arrested the CFO of The Shooting Gallery, the production company who made the first "Strangeland." So I was in court fighting to get my property back for 5 fucking years! I did finally get it back this past year and now Lions Gate Entertainment says that they'd like to pick it up. Their exact words were, 'We want to make the sequel.' But getting it from there into movie theaters is going to be a long fucking road. Lions Gate does have plans to release an extended cut of the original "Strangeland" on DVD in July 2007. We're even going to be shooting a new scene, which will be attached to the end of the movie as a teaser for the next one. After it fades to black, it will now fade up on an autopsy. That will be the opening scene for the sequel, which will be called 'Strangeland: Disciple.' But knowing Axl, I feel comfortable saying that even if this film takes me another 10 years... I'll still beat that fucker to the punch!
GOT A SCOOP? OUR WAY! ...
