Colin Minihan to Direct ‘Urban Legend’

Deadline has a report that Screen Gems has tapped Colin Minihan to write and direct their upcoming horror pic Urban Legend. Reports have surfaced that the studio is quickly moving to cast main roles.

While there is no official synopsis at this time, it is said that the movie will center on a diverse cast of college students as they navigate a series of bizarre deaths that resemble urban legends linked to the darkest corners of social media.

Back in 2018 Minihan’s What Keeps You Alive, a film that he wrote and directed, premiered at the SXSW Film Festival in March. The film starred Hannah Emily Anderson and Brittany Allen and follows a young woman fighting for her life as her wife’s murderous intentions become evident. Shortly after it’s festival debut IFC Midnight acquired the film for distribution within the United States.

Keep it locked to Horror News Network for the latest on the exciting development.
