Julianne Hough to star in Blumhouse thriller Curve

I don't care how charming a hitchhiker appears to be, just leave his ass on the side of the road or you could end up becoming a human happy meal! And that's exactly what Julianne Hough (pictured) plans on avoiding as she stars in the upcoming Blumhouse thriller CURVE. Per Variety, continuing a healthy relationship that has already produced one hit with THE PURGE, Universal Pictures has come on to the Blumhouse production CURVE. It has been a while since we've had a solid horror flick of the hitchhiker variety so I'm more than excited to see what Universal and Blumhouse come up with. THE SKELETON KEY director Iain Softley has been tapped to take the wheel behind the thriller.

The initial set-up is simple enough but it's no doubt a pretty damn terrifying situation to find yourself in:

CURVE follows a young bride-to-be who is trapped in her overturned car off a deserted highway after deliberately crashing it in an attempt to escape a charming, predatory hitchhiker.

Universal is distributing with Jason Blum producing through his Blumhouse Productions along with Jaume Collet-Serra, Julie Yorn and Juan Sola. Erik Olsen is executive producing. Lee Patterson will rewrite the script from Kimberly Lofstrom Johnson's original draft. That's all we've got for now but hopefully we'll learn who this "predatory hitchhiker" is soon enough!
