If you're not in tune with the metaphysical world, then the whole 11:11 thing probably doesn't mean much to you. However if you're into numerology and the like, then you already know that some people believe that time and the number 11 in general are linked to events attributable to more than just random chance. Others believe noticing 11:11 signals a spiritual presence. Conspiracy theorists also believe it has ties to various major historical events (no doubt pointing to 9/11 as a prime example).

Whether you take any of this seriously or not, it's going to serve as the foundation for a new horror-themed thriller from director Darren Lynn Bousman entitled 11 11 11. Bousman will team up with producer Wayne Rice to craft the film, which is due in theaters on November 11th, 2011 (11/11/11 ... )

Bousman has horror experience, having helmed three films in the Saw franchise as well as cult hit Repo: The Genetic Opera. Hopefully that's enough to counter the fact that whole project started to materialize solely because Rice noted that 11/11/11 was on a Friday and wanted to have a movie opening for marketing purposes. And you thought Hollywood executives were shallow ...

The director is adamant that he wants his film to be nothing like another recent numerology thriller, The Number 23. The title will apparently center on the idea that there are "11 gates of Heaven and how on 11:11 on the 11th day of the 11th month, the 11th gate will open up and something from another world will enter the earthly realm for 49 minutes." Sounds vaguely interesting ... I guess. Bousman wants audiences to know this will be more like Signs than Saw.

Any interest in 11 11 11 or does this whole project just not add up to anything interesting for you?
