The Hollywood Reporter exclusively reported today that ‘The Guest’ director Adam Wingard is returning to the horror world with Lionsgate’s ‘The Woods’. Simon Barrett, whom he has worked with many times, has written the script. Little is known about the story at this time, other than that the story involves college students who discover that they are not alone while on a camping trip. Roy Lee, Steven Schneider, Keith Calder and Jessica Wu are producing the picture, which they are planning to start shooting in the spring. The group is planning on casting mostly unknown actors to maximize the scares. Wingard and Barrett are well known in horror for the film ‘You’re Next’, and segments in both the ‘V/H/S’ and ‘The ABC’s of Death’ horror anthologies.
