Reunion: Ready or Not directors board high school horror movie at MGM

Last Updated on August 2, 2021

Radio Silence, the filmmakers behind 2019's Ready or Not, announced that they're teaming with writers Guy Busick and R. Christopher Murphy for a high school horror film titled Reunion.

Radio Silence, made up of Matt Bettinelli-Olpin, Tyler Gillett, and Chad Villella, will direct and produce the project based on a screenplay by Busick, who has teamed with Murphy on the concept. It's also been reported that MGM has acquired the spec script in what was a heated competition.

According to Deadline, Reunion tells of what happens when the horrific experience of high school reunions is taken to a new extreme when a group of uninspired old friends becomes the only hope for survival against an unwelcome shape-shifting creature.

Busick is steadily becoming a name to know after recently co-writing the new installment of Scream with James Vanderbilt. Busick also co-wrote several episodes of Castle Rock with his writing partner, Murphy, perhaps labeling him as a go-to for horror-related projects.

Personally, I get excited each time I see that Radio Silence is attached to a new project. Ready or Not was among my top favorite films of 2019 and I'm thrilled to hear that they'll be delivering a creature feature with Reunion. Those types of movies are a rare breed nowadays, and so if anyone can bring them back in a big way, it could be them.

We'll be sure to bring you more details as plans for Reunion continue to take shape.
