Ryan Murphy And Jason Blum Head Into ‘The Town That Dreaded Sundown’

The Town that Dreaded Sundown

Late last year we discussed the fact that MGM, who is also rebooting Carrie, is developing a remake of 1976 horror movie >The Town that Dreaded Sundown. Now it appears that Ryan Murphy (the creator of “American Horror Story”) spoke out about the project this evening at an “AHS” event in Hollywood. It seems that Alfonso Gomez-Rejon might be directing with Murphy and Sinister‘s Jason Blum producing.

The original movie was based on five unsolved murders attributed to the Phantom Killer during three months in 1946 in and around the city of Texarkana on the border between Texas and Arkansas. Pierce shot large parts of the movie in and around Texarkana with extras recruited from local residents.
