New Director For Dimension’s ‘Strangers’-esque Slasher ‘Kristy’

dimension-films

We’ve received word that Donkey Punch director Olly Blackburn is the latest name attached to Dimension Films’ long-gestured The Strangers-esque slasher Kristy, which takes place on a college campus. He replaces Gary Fleder.

Anthony Jaswinski penned the script that “Follows a college coed who stays in her dorm during Thanksgiving and is terrorized by four masked assailants on the empty campus — the killers are up against far more than they bargained for.” Scott Rosenberg is still rewriting the script.

As we previously reported, Dimension has set their sights on Emma Watson for the lead role, although we don’t put much behind this anymore.

David M. Krischner and Corey Sienga produce. Matthew Stein executive produces.

    I’ve been meaning to ask this, as I see you continually using the term: Do you mean “long-gestating”, rather than “long-gestured”?

    Script was actually re-written by both Phil Rosenberg and Scott Rosenberg. But whatever. Looks like creepy fun.
