Norbert Kiel's Debut Horror Thriller REPLACE Gets The Green Light

Andrew Mack, Contributing Writer
German short film maker Norbert Kiel will soon start on his feature film debut, Replace. A trio of Toronto based production companies will work with Germany based Sparkling Pictures to get the project started. Ultra 8 Pictures, A71 Productions and 108 Media are backing the project which will begin shooting here in Canada later this year. 108 Media will handle international sales. There is no word on casting yet.
 
Replace portrays a young woman with a strange skin disease who's forced to make a choice when she discovers that she can replace her own skin with other woman's and maintain her beauty.

All of the Toronto based writers here at Twitch are thrilled of course because we have all known Ultra 8 Pictures' dynamic duo of Colin Geddes and Katarina Gligorijević for many years now. They are lovely people. I am sure the rest of the Toronto based production companies are awesome too.

    I must admit dermatology doesn't sound like the kind of horror premise that makes me go "OOOoooooooo."

    I suppose it depends on their approach. Perhaps it will be a sensually driven performance? Admittedly radioactive zits would be cooler but slightly towards Troma territory. So, no. Time will tell if everyone's hard work over this past year getting this project started pays off.

    I would totally see a movie about someone with radioactive zits. I wonder if that's a common affliction among budding young X-Men going through puberty.
