Gregg Araki - 'Kaboom'

Anyone that has read this blog knows Gregg Araki is my favorite filmmaker. I can't believe I didn't know about this earlier, but he is reuniting with James Duvall (and a hot, young cast) for his next film, 'Kaboom.'

Official synopsis:
A hyper-stylized TWIN PEAKS for the Coachella Generation, featuring a gorgeous, super hot young cast, KABOOM is a wild and sex-drenched horror-comedy thriller that tells the story of Smith, an ambisexual 18-year-old college freshman who stumbles upon a monstrous conspiracy in a seemingly idyllic Southern California seaside town...
Smith's everyday life in the dorms - hanging out with his arty, sarcastic best friend Stella, hooking up with a beautiful free spirit named London, lusting for his gorgeous but dim surfer roommate Thor - all gets turned upside-down after one fateful, terrifying night. Tripping on some hallucinogenic cookies he ate at a party, Smith is convinced he's witnessed the gruesome murder of an enigmatic Red Haired Girl who has been haunting his dreams.

Sounds like Araki is getting back to his 'Doom Generation'/'Nowhere' roots and will hopefully redeem himself after the disappointing 'Smiley Face.' I can't fucking wait!

Here are the first stills from the film:
