Taylor and Crahan unveiled their new film and TV production company, called Living Breathing Films, in January at the Sundance Film Festival in Park City, Utah. The company, said in a press release to specialize in “mystery, suspense, horror and the dark side of life,” held a press conference, launch party and acoustic performance for media and festival attendees, during which Taylor and Crahan announced their initial projects.

In a statement, Taylor described the company’s first, yet-to-be-named project as “very psychological,” adding, “It’s a study in ‘Did my eyes see what I think they saw?’ It’s definitely going to stir the pot and get the world talking.”

Both Taylor and Crahan are giving input into the first script, with Taylor telling The Pulse Of Radio that Crahan intends to direct a film at some point. The percussionist has directed all of SLIPKNOT‘s home videos and co-directed its music videos.

Taylor has been ambivalent about working on new SLIPKNOT material following the death in May 2010 of the group’s bassist, Paul Gray, although Crahan and drummer Joey Jordison have been much more confident about the band recording again.

SLIPKNOT will headline this summer’s Rockstar Energy Drink Mayhem Festival in the U.S.
