Platinum Dunes Gets Scared ‘Half To Death’

The Platinum Dunes boys are back with another horror-thriller from Michael Bay’s genre company. Starting this August is Half to Death, which will be distributed by Rogue Pictures, the sister arm of both Universal Pictures and Focus Features. Inside you’ll find out who’s directing, along with a synopsis of the film. The film is aiming at a 2008 release.

Website Film Jerk scored the following information on HALF TO DEATH:

“A young college freshman named Teresa is troubled by when she discovers she is living the same day over and over again, one that starts out innocently enough but always ends with her brutal murder by an unknown attacker. Could the murdered be her boyfriend Gregory, who is also sleeping with Teresa’s roommate Lori? Or could it be Lori, who is ferociously envious that Gregory might like Teresa more? Maybe it is one of Teresa’s classmates, unable to get her attention? Perhaps one of her professors, who cannot consummate their passion for their top student? Or perhaps it’s some secret Skull & Bones-type society, who picked Teresa for no good reason to be their ritualistic sacrifice? It’s like “Single White Female” meets “Groundhog’s Day” meets “Captivity,” and certain to be just as terrifying.

Finnish video director Antti Jokinen will make his feature directing debut, from a screenplay by one-time Buffy comic book writer Scott Lobdell. Look for the film in theatres sometime in 2008.”

Watch for casting news as soon as it’s revealed.
