Soon to be seen in Ti West’s The Innkeepers, the gorgeous Sara Paxton is set to re-team with Shark Night director David R. Ellis in a new horror film. The Briar Lake Murders will see Paxton and a group of friends once again head to a Lakeside house and pissing off some locals. There will be no sharks involved here though. The only other name attached to star in the film so far is Gia Bay.
The film has been written by Walter Jakubowski, Neal Fischer and David Nevarez. Joe Guinan, Kathleen Brinegar-Cowan, Phillip Koch and Jakubowski will be producing. Jakubowski wrote the following synopsis:
A group of rude and insensitive city kids take a weekend vacation to Briar Lake, a picturesque town overlooking a beautiful lake, which to most outsiders would appear to be a peaceful small town. Having zero respect for anyone outside of their group, they are confronted by the hostile and eccentric residents. Following a bizarre experience in the town’s diner, they quickly retreat to the protection of their borrowed vacation lake house, where they plan to let loose and celebrate their weekend out of the city. After an unexpected visit from the local police, the long weekend is cut short. Two of the locals have been brutally murdered, and this group of “outsiders” become the prime suspects. When the string of murders spins out of control, the group must come together to unravel Briar Lake’s sordid past and uncover the hidden secrets. A vacation is always fun until you die!
