Chernobyl Diaries' Brad Parker to direct Appalachian horror film

Chernobyl Diaries Brad Parker

Although it was released six years ago, Brad Parker's feature directorial debut CHERNOBYL DIARIES (pictured above) is a movie I still haven't gotten around to watching, so I don't have an opinion on the fact that he's returning to the horror genre for his second directorial effort, an untitled film that is set to begin filming in Kentucky this month.

Produced by Julio and Diego Hallivis through their company 1inMM Productions alongside Alejandro De Leon and Andres Rosende, this untitled project does have a plot synopsis: 

A geological expedition to an Appalachian sinkhole becomes a terrifying fight for survival against a mysterious deadly force.

Well, the Appalachian setting does sound appealing to me. The screenplay was written by Eric Scherbarth and Stefan Jaworski. Jared Ian Goldman is executive producing the film.

The Hallivis brothers had this to say about the project: 

We’re thrilled to finally realize this amazing script with a sharp and visionary director such as Brad. His undisputed command of the genre and keen storytelling instincts honed from years of experience will all help deliver the film this wants to be: a horror classic."


Parker got his start as a visual effects artist and was recently creating effects for GODZILLA: KING OF THE MONSTERS between directing projects. He has also served as second unit director on LET ME IN, DAWN OF THE PLANET OF THE APES, and WAR FOR THE PLANET OF THE APES
