Jeepers helmer explores suburban terror
Victor Salva with write and direct the horror-thriller beginning early next year. He’ll co-produce with Don E. FauntLeRoy.
Gina Phillips leads the cast as a radio talk show therapist who moves back to her childhood home when her alcoholic father dies. But upon arrival, she discovers the neighborhood is terrified of the local paperboy.
She thinks this is ridiculous, until she encounters the boy himself, and learns the hard way, that he is a cunning and dangerous sociopath, who may have killed her father and even others. When he starts to exhibit abnormal abilities, she starts to doubt her own sanity and the boy begins waging a war of terror on her.
Ray Wise is also locked to star.
Phillips and Wise are reunited with Salva after their turns in Jeepers Creepers and Jeepers Creepers 2, respectively, both of which Salva wrote and directed.
Of Rosewood Lane, Salva describes the film “as a jump-out-of-your-seat thriller in the tradition of my favorite terror in suburbia film: John Carpenter’s Halloween.”
Jeepers Creepers‘ Brian Penikas is on FX duties.
