Alcon has picked up the North American distribution rights to Chernobyl Diaries (the previously untitled ghost town project), the latest horror movie from Oren Peli of Paranormal Activity fame, reports THR.
Peli did not direct the movie but wrote the story and produced with Brian Witten. Brad Parker, a visual effect supervisor, makes his debut as director on the movie.
“‘Diaries’ is set in the city of Prypiat that once housed the workers of the Chernobyl nuclear reactor and follows a group of friends who, while vacationing in Europe, find themselves stranded in the abandoned city only to discover that they are not alone.”
As previously announced, Jonathan Sadowski (Friday the 13th), Devin Kelley, Jesse McCartney (“Locke & Key” pilot), Olivia Taylor Dudley, Nathan Phillips (Wolf Creek, Dying Breed, Snakes on a Plane), Ingrid Bolso Berdal (Hansel and Gretel: Witch Hunters 3D, Cold Prey) and Dimitry Diatchenko all star.
Alcon, which releases its movies through Warner Bros, will open the movie Memorial Day weekend this year.
