Ti West Becomes Barrett and Wingard’s ‘Next!’

A few weeks back we announced exclusively that A Horrible Way to Die writer Simon Barrett (Red Sands, Dead Birds) and director Adam Wingard (Pop Skull) are reteaming to take on the slasher genre with You’re Next! This morning we learned that director Ti West (The Roost, The Innkeepers, The House of the Devil) and James Ransome (“The Wire”) are the first to sign on to star.

We’re told the pic will follow a grad student – when meeting her boyfriend’s family for the first time – who must rely on her past as the daughter of survivalists to save the day when a gang of masked murders attacks to kill them all! Awesome!

Keith Calder and Jessica Wu produce. Shooting is scheduled for March 17 in Missouri.
