In addition to playing Loreli, one of the femme fatales in Frank Miller’s “The Spirit,” King will also be taking on the role of Sarah Palmer in the upcoming remake of the cult classic, “My Bloody Valentine.” However, those expecting to see just a straight-forward remake are in for a treat, as this version will not only be a 3D film, but also be shot in 4K – a new version of HD filming that’s taking movie-watching to a whole new level.
“Normal HD is 2000 [pixels], [“My Bloody Valentine 3D”] is shot at 4000, and it’s done with 3D, so it’s not like random things flying at you. It’s literally the whole thing…you’re in the movie,” explained King. “Lionsgate’s doing a great job of being involved with these films that are really taking it to the next level, so I’m really excited about that.”
King will be playing the aforementioned Palmer — who’s involved in a bizarre love triangle between her husband and a jealous ex-boyfriend, and the story revolves around a series of murders which took place during Valentines Day ten years prior. “It’s just the mystery around all of that,” said King. “But it’s really cool — it’s not just your normal gore, horror film. It’s very character-oriented.”
