I Spit on Your Grave 3: Update

I Spit on Your Grave 3Although no director is yet attached to the project, I Spit on Your Grave 3 now has an outline premise and a casting call. As the character names ("Old Woman"?) suggest, the plot is probably still in the early stages. It sounds like the new sequel will ignore the events of part two entirely, which is a shame. I was hoping that the third film would feature Jennifer (Sarah Butler) and Katie (Jemma Dallender) meeting at some kind of PTSD counselling and deciding to wage war on rape in general - both in and out of the courtroom. Maybe the film could set aside depictions of rape and nudity in favor of character-driven drama about the rape-kit backlog in America. Hell, I'd even watch a film where those characters take justice into their own hands by breaking into police storage units, stealing the rape its, testing them in their own impromptu facility, then anonymously forwarding the information to the police - or even hacking into the police database, then tracking down the rapists themselves (if anyone from CineTel is reading, give me a call: "let's make it happen"). Surely my idea sounds more entertaining than the fairly drab synopsis below...  

Synopsis
Following her rape, Jennifer Hills wrote a best-selling account of her ordeal and of the controversial trial in which she was accused — of taking the law into her own hands and brutally killing her assailants. In the small town where the rape and revenge took place, the relatives of the four rapists she killed are furious that the court declared her not guilty, and resolve to take justice into their own hands.

[ BECKY ]
Mid 50s. A mean-spirited, vindictive woman that has lost her husband to foul play. A very angry individual, Becky leads several townspeople into a bizarre plot to avenge and destroy her husband’s killer. A physically fit Kathy Bates type. LEAD. 1 scene of exposing her breast/partial nudity.

[ HERMAN ]
Late 50s. A mentally challenged, strong bear of a man. Herman is a follower of Becky’s, who also lost his son to foul play. However, he finds himself questioning Becky’s actions as they often conflict with his strong religious beliefs. LEAD.

[ KEVIN ]
Mid 20s to late 30s. Physically fit and handy with a knife. Kevin is a follower of Becky. A little too eager to seek revenge on his brother’s killer, Kevin will follow Becky’s orders to the last note. LEAD. FULL NUDITY REQUIRED.

[ SCOTTY ]
Mid 20s to late 30s. Attractive man. Less than clever. A follower of Becky, and the cousin of one of the men killed. LEAD. FULL NUDITY REQUIRED.

[ OLD WOMAN ]
Mid 70s or older, spunky and kind with a deceiving evil undertone. She and her husband wander around the outskirts of town in their beat-up pickup truck constantly arguing with one another. They always seem to be in the right place at the right time.

[ OLD MAN ]
Mid 70s or older, with questionable hygiene habits. He and his wife wander around the outskirts of town in their beat-up pickup truck constantly arguing with one another. They always seem to be in the right place at the right time.

[ BEADY-EYES ]
50 – 70 years old. A woman with beady-eyes and a hook-nose who has a creepy hyena like laugh. Paddling the streets with her bicycle and all the while ringing her bell, she’s indeed very creepy…and dangerous.

[ CLERGYMAN ]
50-70 years old, this ever present character adds much meaning and understanding to the town’s groups twisted grasp on reality. Perfect character for a cameo.

***UPDATE***: 
According to Dread Central, 'Camille Keaton, who played Jennifer in Meir Zarchi’s 1978 cult classic I Spit on Your Grave (Day of the Woman), will be starring in the third film. The project is is now titled I Spit on Your Grave – Deja-vu and as it turns out… is an actual sequel written by Meir Zarchi that shares characters as well as continuity with his original 1978 cult classic Day of the Woman aka Spit On Your Grave. Chad Ferrin and Terry Zarchi are producing with Meir once again directing. The project has nothing to do with CineTel Films or Anchor Bay.'
