Rise (update)

GM! Here's an update on Lucy Liu's newest project:

Fangoria reports that Ghost House Pictures horror-thriller Rise, starring Lucy Liu, has completed filming in Los Angeles. Michael Chiklis, James D'Arcy, Carla Gugino, Robert Forster, Cameron Richardson and Marilyn Manson also star.

Liu will play a reporter who wakes up in a morgue and discovers she's no longer among the living. She vows revenge against the vampires responsible for putting her there and hunts them down one by one.

The magazine talked to writer/director Sebastian Gutierrez about the film. Here's a clip:

Although 'Rise' is clearly rooted in horror, Gutierrez says the film’s vibe is closer to classic film noir. "The story itself is very simple, but it's told in a non-linear fashion," he tells Fango. "And hopefully, it has a very nightmarish and relentless quality. It's very bleak noir, like John Boorman's Point Blank."
