MTV has ordered the cyber thriller “Eye Candy,” from horror producer Jason Blum (Insidious, Paranormal Activity) and Twilight helmer Catherine Hardwicke, Deadline reports. The Scream series adaptation continues to be on fast-track development.
“Eye Candy,” based on R.L. Stine’s novel, has been heating up at MTV for some time. The high-profile package lists Blum as an executive producer through his Blumhouse Prods and Hardwicke as exec producer and director.
Written/co-executive produced by Emmy Grinwis, “‘Eye Candy’ centers on tech genius Lindy, who is persuaded by her roommate to begin online dating and begins to suspect that one of her mysterious suitors might be a deadly cyber stalker. When her friends at the elusive cyber-police uncover a potential serial killer in Manhattan, all signs point to one of Lindy’s dates. Teaming up with this band of hackers, Lindy works to solve the murders while unleashing her own style of justice on the streets of New York City.“
