“We wrapped principal photography on Night of the Cooters back in the month of August, you may recall,” he said in a statement. “That’s our adaptation of the classic short story by the one and only Howard Waldrop. Shot entirely in greenscreen in Santa Fe, from a screenplay by Joe Lansdale.
The film is directed by Vincent d’Onofrio, who also starred. We turned it over to the wizards at Trioscope, who have been busily working on it ever since with their groundbreaking animation process.”
