Big news for Fede Alvarez as Deadline is reporting that both he and his writing partner Rodolfo Sayagues have inked a deal with Legendary Pictures. The duo will create movies through their Bad Hombe Films banner for Legendary. The pair have teamed in the past to create modern classics such as Evil Dead and Don’t Breathe. Shintaro Shimosawa has been added to Bad Hombre as the Head of Production.
First up for the group is a film which has been described as The Shining set in the White House. While the concept may not seem far from reality, the film will be written by Joe Epstein and be directed by Fede Alvarez.
What has piqued our interest is that the banner is gearing up to create a reboot of the 1974 horror classic The Texas Chainsaw Massacre with Chris Thomas Devlin set to write the script.
Stay tuned to Horror News Network for the latest on these projects.
