Adam Wingard is one of my favourite horror directors at the moment, and he and his writing partner Simon Barrett continue to get better and better. Already giving the horror world masterpieces like A Horrible Way to Die, You’re Next, The Guest plus incredibly segments for VHS and VHS/2 plus The ABCs of Death, hearing that the pair are returning with another horror film makes me very happy.
THR reported the news:
Adam Wingard has signed to helm The Woods for Lionsgate.
The project is written by his longtime collaborator Simon Barrett and while many of the details are being kept submerged, it does involve a group of college students on a camping trip who discover they are not alone.
Roy Lee, Steven Schneider, Keith Calder and Jessica Wu are the producers. The team is looking to move fast on this, planning a spring shoot and looking to cast mostly unknowns with the hope of giving the movie maximum scares.
Jason Constantine, Mike Paseornek and Eda Kowan are overseeing the project for Lionsgate.
Expect much more on this as it develops.
