Murder is a horror slasher film co-written and directed by JohnCena2305alt1, and is inspired by the Garry's Mod gamemode of the same name, retaining the concept but has notable changes. The film is set in present day 2017 where two detectives must solve a case that has been unsolved for 30 years, while preventing the killer from halting them and others after the son of the alleged suspect, who isn't what he quite seems, targets them.

It is expected to be released around Halloween weekend of 2018.

Plot

Two locally-famous detectives take on one of the most infamous cases in the history of Chicago, where they learn that the son of the alleged killer is not who he says he is. But as they grow closer to the truth and attempt to arrest a killer on the loose inside his mansion, disastrous consequences follow.

Production

Back in 2014, the director and co-writer, JohnCena2305alt1, was visited by his friend and fellow filmmaker, Twelvetothirteen, about adapting the Murder games on ROBLOX to the ROBLOX film industry. They agreed, where Twelve wrote a script about ROBLOXians being abducted and killed by a cyborg killer. It was eventually rewritten, adding a noir element to it, with the cyborg killer being retained. In late 2014, DonValuta had written a 25-page draft about a human killer with the revised plot details. The film had seen a difficult production; it has seen delays and cancellations due to the lack of actors and actresses in roles, and also the creative and writer's block of the director and co-writer himself.

However, in early 2017, the film has finally begun it's pre-production stages, with John writing a script, based on some of his ideas and Don's old draft, with Jacob2934 being hired to rewrite the script. As of today, the only actors and actresses who have been cast are WeepinnWillow and Buddbudd222 as Detective Allison Miller and Forensic Analyst Steve Turner, respectively.

On January 26, 2018, WeepinnWillow left the cast, citing a desire to work on other projects.

Trivia

  • Most of the names of the characters have been revised. From the original vision that the director had, Brooklyn and Alexander were the former first names of Jason and Lorraine. Some names have been completely revised, for example Lisa's name used to be Miranda Chase until the major revision of the characters.
  • This is another attempt to make the film, after multiple attempts ended up in cancellations.
  • DonValuta worked on the film's first draft.
  • Most of the roles have been changed, but a few of them still retain theirs. The two detectives of the film retain their roles but they have personality changes in order to provide more substantial character development.
  • Christopher Davis' name used to be Liam Foster and that he used to be a Caucasian homeless male, and then a major revision recommended by BenIsLegit on Discord made the director revision Christopher into an African-American.
