Tarsem Singh, who is known for his fantastical visuals, is preparing to ready his next project, Killing on Carnival Row. This is going to be Singh’s new project after his new take on Snow White, Mirror Mirror.
Killing on Carnival Row is a fantasy movie with the script written by Travis Beacham. The script was bought about six years ago by the producing tandem of Arnold and Anne Kopelson. In fact, Killing on Carnival Row is Beacham’s first sold script. He will go on to write the scripts for the Clash of The Titans remake, Guillermo del Toro’s much anticipated Pacific Rim, the planned remake of Black Hole and the reimagined 20,000 Leagues Under The Sea.
Killing on Carnival Row is a dark fantasy thriller set in a city called Burgue. One side of the city is populated by seal-like creatures, while the other side is Carnival Row, which is a ghetto that houses the disnfranchised winged fairies. The movie deals with the investigation into a murder and an unknown antagonist who is killing the residents of Carnival Row one by one.
Singh’s commitment to Killing on Carnival Row, which is expected to be released on June 2012, is definite proof that the director is pushing his output to quite a prolific level. Previously, it took him years to put a movie out — The Cell in 2000 and then The Fall in 2006. He’s pushing more movies now though. Aside from Mirror, Mirror, he is also coming out with a 3D Greek mythology movie. Singh himself has indicated that he wants to make one movie a year.
