They're finally making a horror movie set in the White House

Any similarity to actual persons living or dead is purely coincidental, we're sure.

It took long enough but they're making a horror film set in the White House.


The 'they' in question is director Fede Álvarez, who has previous in the genre with the likes of the Evil Dead remake (decent and very gory) and Don't Breathe (pretty good until it isn't).

He also helmed The Girl in the Spider's Web, but nobody saw that.

Now, the Uruguayan filmmaker has his sights set on 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue with what is being billed as "The Shining set in the White House."

It's part of a new deal that sees his Bad Hombre production company sign with Legendary Pictures. The exclusive arrangement will also see a reboot of horror classic The Texas Chain Saw Massacre.

Yes, another one.

The Hollywood Reporter notes that Shintaro Shimosawa, previously a writer and co-executive producer on Fear the Walking Dead, will have the 'Head of Production' sign on his office door at Bad Hombre.

“We are looking forward to sparking a new and meaningful relationship with a powerhouse like Legendary,” said Alvarez.


No word on just what US President will be in office during that lead project, but we can think of one or two options...
