Alexandre Aja alligator movie Crawl, produced by Sam Raimi, coming in August

Tiger House Kaya Scodelario

The upcoming Alexandre Aja / Sam Raimi project CRAWL sounds a lot like the 2010 movie BURNING BRIGHT, which was about a young woman getting trapped in the house with an escaped tiger during a hurricane. CRAWL just replaces the tiger with alligators, making it a story about 

a young woman who, while struggling to save her father during a Category 5 hurricane, finds herself trapped inside a flooding house and fighting for her life against Florida's most savage and feared predators.

Regardless of how similar CRAWL is to BURNING BRIGHT, I'm looking forward to it because it's an Aja / Raimi project... and because I'm interested in watching a woman battle alligators in a flooded house, especially in a movie from the director of PIRANHA 3D.

The woman in this film is played by Kaya Scodelario, whose previous credits include a home invasion thriller called TIGER HOUSE (pictured above).

Aja directs CRAWL from a screenplay by Shawn Rasmussen and Michael Rasmussen, which he rewrote himself. Raimi is producing the film with Craig Flores and Paramount Pictures is distributing it.

Paramount has announced that they will be giving CRAWL a theatrical release on August 23rd.

I'm going to be seeing this on the big screen for sure.
