‘The Beastmaster’: Don Coscarelli Has Reclaimed the Rights to the ’80s Movie and Hopes to Make a Reboot

A few years after the release of horror classic Phantasm, Don Coscarelli made his own sword-and-sorcery fantasy film with The Beastmaster, released in 1982 and developing a cult status in the ensuing decades. The film was written by Coscarelli and Paul Pepperman, and we’ve learned via a website set up to find its camera negative that the duo has reclaimed the rights.

For starters, the original camera negative has been lost to the sands of time, and Coscarelli and Pepperman are seeking the help of the film’s fans in order to find it.

They write in a plea to fans on the new website, “It boggles the mind that the negative to a movie photographed by legendary cinematographer John Alcott (Clockwork Orange, Barry Lyndon, The Shining) could be lost. If it could happen to The Beastmaster, it could happen to any film! The loss of this negative would be a tragedy. Please help us find it!

You can head over to WhereIsTheBeastmaster.com to learn more and follow the trail.

On the very same website, Coscarelli and Pepperman reveal that now that they’ve reclaimed the rights to The Beastmaster, their hope is to get a big screen reboot off the ground!

As explained on the site, “There is a generation of fans of the original film who would welcome a big-screen reboot of the original sword & sorcery classic and Coscarelli and Pepperman are determined to make that happen. The bronze-age hero and his furry fighting force may be coming soon to a theater near you!

The 1982 film, starring Marc Singer, Tanya Roberts and Rip Torn, was “A sword-and-sorcery fantasy about a young man’s search for revenge. Armed with supernatural powers, the handsome hero and his animal allies wage war against marauding forces.”
