The premiere of the film Gogol. Strashnaya Mest (Gogol. The Terrible Revenge) took place in Moscow’s Oktyabr movie theatre on August 21. The film was presented by the creators of the project - producers Valery Fyodorovich and Evgeny Nikishov, director Egor Baranov, screenwriters Alex Chupov and Natasha Merkulova, composer Ryan Otter, CG supervisor Evgeny Barulin, as well as the leading actors Oleg Menshikov, Alexander Petrov, Evgeny Stychkin, Taisia Vilkova and others.
When the film was shown to journalists, the most popular question was, “Will there be a continuation of Gogol?”
“Besides Gogol, Russian classical literature has a huge number of excellent, creative writers that everyone knows. We want to make them superheroes and part of our new cinema universe. The script is already in the process of being written!” said Valery Fyodorovich, general manager of TV-3 and producer of the film.
“These films have already done a lot to popularize Gogol’s books, and this is not just our opinion, but statistics. The sales of the writer's books increased after the release of our films. And this is the best result possible!” said Evgeny Baranov, director of Gogol.
