Teddy Sears, who can be seen on “American Horror Story,” has landed the lead role opposite Julianne Hough in Blumhouse’s micro-budget horror-thriller Curve, which Iain Softley (Hackers) is currently directing, TheWrap reports.
“Hough stars as a young bride-to-be who is trapped in her overturned car off a deserted highway after deliberately crashes it in an attempt to escape a charming, predatory hitchhiker (Sears).“
Jason Blum is producing “Curve” through his Blumhouse Productions banner along with Julie Yorn, Jaume Collet-Serra and Juan Sola. Erik Olson will executive produce the film, which Universal’s EVP of production Scott Bernstein will oversee for the studio.
Kimberly Johnson wrote the original script, which she developed with Collet-Serra while the Spanish filmmaker was shooting Orphan. Lee Paterson penned the most recent draft.
