‘The Final Girls’ A Horror Comedy In the Vein of ‘Last Action Hero’!!

AHS

Watchmen‘s Malin Akerman, pictured below, and “American Horror Story’s” Taissa Farmiga, above, will star in Groundswell Productions’ comedy The Final Girls, which was grabbed by Sony Pictures Worldwide for distribution.

Sounding a bit like Last Action Hero, the film is “the tale of the grieving daughter of a 1980s scream queen who finds herself trapped in her mother’s most famous film. The women are reunited and must fight off the film’s maniacal killer before the daughter can return to her life.

Production is scheduled to commence in Louisiana in April.

Screen Daly adds that Todd Strauss-Schulson (A Very Harold & Kumar 3D Christmas) will direct The Final Girls. M A Fortin and Joshua John Miller co-wrote the screenplay and Michael London and Janice Williams are producing.

    Just realized Taissa is Vera’s sister. Strange.

    Last Action Hero is misunderstood (it’s a parody film, of course you’re not supposed to take it seriously), and I love it, so I’m sure I’ll enjoy this.

    Sounds a lot better than the planned female spin on The Expendables (The ExpendaBelles) films coming up, because it has all the makings of a fucking disaster.

      I totally agree. Last Action Hero is a brilliant reflection.

      On the topic of The ExpendaBelles: The title itself insults me. I don’t get why would anyone want to see something like that.

        @Raziel_cz, LOL. i agree that the “EXPENDABELLES” title is horrifically stupid. i’m up for an all kick ass female movie like that but for the love of all that is good in the world change the title! :)
