New Line Picks Up Horror-Comedy ‘The Parenting’

New Line Cinema has picked up The Parenting, a new horror-comedy project with an LGBTQ twist, according to The Hollywood Reporter. Details on the project are being kept under wraps, but the project is said to have a Meet the Parents tone while being balanced with scares.

Kent Sublette, the co-head writer of Saturday Night Live is set to write, while Craig Johnson, best known for the 2014 comedy The Skeleton Twins, is in talks to direct.

Johnson, no stranger to LGBT tropes, wrote and directed Alex Strangelove. Released to Netflix in 2018, the film centers around a young man who finds himself caught between losing his virginity to a girl and developing feelings towards a gay schoolmate.

Production company Good Fear, in charge of the project, are also working on other projects such as The Culling, a ”cabin in the woods” horror story about a priest making a last stand against the demon that terrorized his family during his childhood.
