We told you last week that Christopher Landon is directing Half to Death 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.
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 behind the project and has Jessica Rothe starring with Israel Broussard (“Fear the Walking Dead”) playing her best friend.
Half to Death is said to be scheduled to begin shooting this November in Georgia.
