Nine years ago Michael Bay and his Platinum Dunes had tapped Transformers and Jennifer’s Body star Megan Fox to star in a Groundhog Day-esque horror pic about a girl who must relive the same day over and over again until she figures out who is trying to kill her and why.
Now, Blumhouse is allegedly behind Half to Death, which is said to be scheduled to begin shooting this November in Georgia.
A quick look around Google revealed that Christopher Landon is supposedly directing from a script he co-penned with Scott Lobdell. Landon, who penned Dusturbia and several Paranormal Activity sequels, also directed Paranormal Activity: The Marked Ones and Paramount’s Scouts Guide to the Zombie Apocalypse. He seems like a go-to choice for the production house.
In regards to Megan Fox, she is no longer listed attached to the project, as it’s been almost a decade since it’s been in development. But that long road comes to an end next month, according to the aforementioned link. Hopefully we’ll hear something official soon to go along with some casting. It sounds like a really cool concept….
