The first project to be announced under the newly created Al-Ghanim Entertainment banner—a Los Angeles and Kuwaiti-based specialty financing and production company—is THE GIRL IN THE PHOTOGRAPHS and it will be executive produced by horror legend Wes Craven. Craven protege Nick Simon, who wrote THE PYRAMID and COLD COMES THE NIGHT, has been pegged to helm the thriller; one of those is watchable, so there's that.
Inspired by Craven’s SCREAM series, THE GIRL IN THE PHOTOGRAPHS is set against the glamorous backdrop of the fashion world, bringing a modern sensibility to the genre. It is currently in the casting stage, so hang in there for further details on who will be slashing their way through this one.
Brandon M. Vayda and Krystal Tiffany Vayda will executive produce alongside Craven and Nawaf Alghanim, with Thomas Mahoney set to produce along with Andrea Chung.
