Wes Craven may have passed a few months ago, but his legacy lives on. The last film the horror legend executive produced, THE GIRL IN THE PHOTOGRAPHS, has been acquired by Vertical Entertainment. The plan is to release the film theatrically in early 2016.
Nick Simon’s horror crime thriller stars Kal Penn, Claudia Lee, Kenny Wormald, Toby Hemingway, Luke Baines, Miranda Rae Mayo, Katharine Isabelle, and Mitch Pileggi.
In THE GIRL IN THE PHOTOGRAPHS, big-city glamour clashes with small-town values when a celebrity photographer and his entourage descend upon a sleepy community to investigate the bloody doings of a serial killer.
Craven had this to say about Simon and the movie back in 2014:
Sometimes you read a script and you just know. From first draft to final cut, Nick has told a unique story that will leave you wondering: is it always good to be noticed? It has been a pleasure to work with Nick from his days in my WGA mentor group to picture lock. You'll be hearing from him again.”
Our own Chris Bumbray didn't think much of the movie when he saw it at TIFF, but you'll get to make up your own mind when it comes out next year. Stay tuned for a precise release date.
