‘Sorority House Massacre’ TV Series Adaptation Coming From Norman Reedus And Utopia Originals

Robert Schwartzman’s Utopia Originals and Norman Reedus’ production company bigbaldhead are teaming with Shout! Studios to develop a TV adaptation of Sorority House Massacre. Creator of Broadway’s Hedwig and the Angry Inch, Stephen Trask also will help develop the project, according to a report on Deadline.

“I could not be more excited to collaborate with Robert and his incredible team at Utopia on this project,” said Reedus. “Their taste and creative vision are inspiring, and exactly in line with the kind of content that bigbaldhead set out to develop. We are thrilled to revisit this cult classic and create something truly unique.”

“When we started Utopia, it was with the intention of not only supporting filmmakers on the distribution side but, also, to expand into working with creatives to build unique, original content from the onset,” said Schwartzman. “With Utopia Originals, we’re excited to hit the ground running with the Sorority House Massacre series and collaborate with the incredible teams behind it.”

Produced by Roger Corman and directed by Carol Frank, Sorority House Massacre was released in 1986 and starred Angela O’Neill, Wendy Martel, Pamela Ross, John C. Russell, Nicole Rio, Marcus Vaughter, Vinnie Bilancio and Joe Nassi.

The film follows Beth, a sorority pledge who starts to realize something is amiss at her sorority house over Memorial Day weekend. Her fears come to fruition as an escaped mental patient attacks and murders her friends. The film spawned two sequels, Sorority House Massacre 2 and Sorority House Massacre 3: Hard to Die.
