PIRANHA. THE HOWLING. GREMLINS. Joe Dante has brought us some really fun horror outings in his long and varied career so it's always exciting to hear that he has another film in the works. Now The Wrap is reporting that Voltage Pictures has come aboard to finance and produce Dante’s horror comedy BURYING THE EX, which will star Anton Yelchin (ODD THOMAS), Ashley Greene (TWILIGHT), Alexandra Daddario (PERCY JACKSON) and Oliver Cooper (PROJECT X).
Alan Trezza wrote the script, which follows...
Max (Yelchin) and Evelyn (Greene) as their relationship takes a nose dive once they move in together. Max discovers how controlling and manipulative Evelyn is but he’s too scared to break up with her. When fate steps in and Evelyn dies in a freak accident, newly-single Max prepares to move on with Olivia (Daddario). His romantic life becomes complicated when Evelyn rises from the grave and sets out to get her boyfriend back, even if that means turning him into one of the undead.
Production begins today in Los Angeles.
