‘Tigers Are Not Afraid’ Director Issa Lopez’s Next Project Will Be Searchlight’s ‘Lost Souls’

Issa López received plenty of attention in 2019 for her breakout film Tigers Are Not Afraid.  According to an exclsuive report from Deadline, it appears that the director has found her follow-up project: an adaptation of the Matthew Baker short story Lost Souls.

Lopez will both write and direct Lost Souls, which is “…set in a world in which some babies are born without souls. A young expectant mother is sent to an unusual wellness center in the desert, with the hopes that it will improve her chances of delivering a healthy baby.”

The film will be produced by Searchlight and Noah Hawley.

Lopez is also currently in development on a “supernatural folklore film” for Guillermo Del Toro (who will act as producer and will also come from Searchlight).

Tigers Are Not Afraid came in third place on Horror News Network’s Annual Top Ten Movies of the Year, right behind two other critically acclaimed films, The Lighthouse and Midsommar.  

Stay tuned to Horror News Network for more information about both of Lopez’s new projects.
