Coming off the smash hit success of A Quiet Place, Platinum Dunes is looking to double down on original horror, and Deadline reports that Sony has just scooped up a pitch from writers Patrick Melton and Marcus Dunstan for Dunes.
Story details are completely under wraps, but the site notes that the film is in the vein of Scream and I Know What You Did Last Summer, suggesting a teen slasher.
They add, “It’s being referred to as an Untitled Christmas movie for now.”
David Beaubaire will produce.
Melton and Dunstan have previously penned Feast, Saw IV, Saw V, Saw VI, Saw 3D: The Final Chapter, The Collector, The Collection and Piranha 3DD.
