“I have thought of doing a horror movie, and I have thought of doing a Christmas movie,” said Anderson, best known for his colourful, quirky comedy films.
He added: “When you make a horror or a thriller, you say you’re supposed to be scared here. You’re supposed to be relieved here. Here we’re explaining something so you know the next part so you’ll be more scared then.
“I like the idea of the requirements and the obligations of working in a genre like that. I’ve done some scenes like that, but I’d like to do a scary movie.”
It seems as if the master of whimsy is getting in the Halloween spirit.
Expect ‘The Grand Babadook Hotel’ to be announced imminently.
