What price beauty?
Screen Gems this week picked up Cosmetic–a new body horror pitch from James Wan and Ingrid Bisu– according to a report on Deadline.
Wan–known to genre fans for Saw, Insidious and The Conjuring–and Bisu–who co-wrote the story for Malignant with Wan–came up with the original idea for Cosmetic. The screenplay will be written by R.H. Norman and Micheline Pitt, who will also co-direct the film.
Cosmetic is set in the beauty industry, “colliding the worlds of glamour and body horror in a supernatural tale of one girl’s deadly pursuit of perfection.”
Wan and Michael Clear are producing the film for Atomic Monster, with Bisu and Judson Scott serving as executive producers.
