Neil Marshall May Throw a Hellfest

Neil Marshall may have secured his latest directing vehicle.  If negotiations go well, he will be working alongside The Walking Dead producer Gale Anne Hurd on a new horror picture set at a location brimming with possibilities.

Marshall – who landed on the genre map with The Descent – is currently in talks to helm CBS Films’ Hellfest.

Scripted by William Penick and Chris Sey, the film might begin shooting early next year.  When we caught up to Hurd a few weeks back she told us the film “takes place at – one of the places that scares me the most – one of those Halloween theme parks, like what Universal does, or Knott’s Scary Farm. That inspired the story: What if one of those people running around wasn’t acting?”

A masked killer running loose in a Halloween haunted attraction.  Knowing Marshall, a lil’ ultra violence is on the way.

Naturally, CBS Films has “franchise” in mind.  More as it develops.
