Mutant Chronicles Director Takes Dangerous ‘Curve’

Simon Hunter – who will see the release of his The Mutant Chronicles this month – has signed on to direct indie thriller Curve, which centers on a young woman’s struggle to survive when she finds herself at the mercy of a psychopathic killer after taking a detour into the backwoods outside New York City. Eva Mendes was formerly attached to star (I guess they saw The Spirit). The screenplay was penned by Kimberly Johnson, but Hunter will work on the script with the aim of going into production in six months.
