JOHN DIES AT THE END is an upcoming feature adaptation of David Wong’s comedic horror novel of the same name. The film is directed by Don Coscarelli (Phantasm series, Bubba Ho-Tep), with Chase Williamson and Rob Mayes played the lead roles of John and Dave. It also stars Paul Giamatti as reporter Arnie Blondestone, Clancy Brown as paranormal superstar Dr. Marconi, Doug Jones as the not-quite-right Roger North, with Giamatti also helping to produce.
It’s a drug that promises an out-of-body experience with each hit. On the street they call it Soy Sauce, and users drift across time and dimensions. But some who come back are no longer human. Suddenly a silent otherworldly invasion is under way, and mankind needs a hero. What it gets instead is John and David, a pair of college dropouts who can barely hold down jobs. Can these two stop the oncoming horror in time to save humanity? No. No, they can’t.
