Director Suparn Verma's ACID FACTORY was criticized by quite a few for being a remake of 'Unknown'. Though not many can actually claim to have watched this film since it wasn't popular out there in West, the herd effect meant that everyone joined the fray and all critics just fell in line. For his next movie though, Suparn is clear that originality is going to be the name of the game. Along with Sanjay Gupta, he is all set to kick start work on a horror film which would be made in 3D and in all likelihood would be made using same technology as evidenced in AVATAR.
'My horror film won't have any reference to past or present. In fact that was my opening conversation with Gupta', he smiles, 'I have seen that howsoever hard you work, better your script and get competent performances from all while giving something new to the audiences, this entire 'remake' business tends to make many people take your work lightly. We were very clear that we didn't want to get into any criticism around the remake factor.'
'Sanjay and I belong to the same wavelength and it was just imperative that we make another movie together', says Suparn who has caught hold of his life once again after the no-show of ACID FACTORY, 'After the release of ACID FACTORY, when I narrated the idea of this horror flick to Sanjay, he was just quiet for some time. He pondered on it for exactly one minute and soon after gave his consent. We truly believe that nothing like this has been made for Indian screens before.'
