In addition to producing a Texas Chain Saw Massacre reboot that's in the works as part of his new partnership with Legendary Pictures, Fede Alvarez (2013's Evil Dead, Don't Breathe) is also looking to direct a new horror movie that takes place in the White House.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, Alvarez "intends to direct" the untitled Washington D.C. horror film, and while specific plot details have yet to be revealed, it's being mentioned as "The Shining set in the White House.” The script for the horror thriller was written by Joe Epstein, writer of the 2017 Black List screenplay Health and Wellness.
Along with a reboot of Tobe Hooper's The Texas Chain Saw Massacre, the White House horror film is among the first projects in the works after Alvarez and Rodo Sayagues' company Bad Hombre inked a first-look partnership with Legendary Pictures. It was also announced that Shintaro Shimosawa (Fear The Walking Dead) will now be the head of production at Bad Hombre.
