AFM: New Films to Deliver Deon Taylor’s Chain Letter

If you’re a regular reader of the site, then you know that we’ve touted Deon Taylor as an up-and-coming director to watch. And now that New Films has acquired his film Chain Letter during AFM, you’ll soon be able to see if we’re right.

Variety reports that New Films has picked up worldwide rights to Deon Taylor’s horror pic Chain Letter and will release the film in the U.S. next year. They believe the film has “franchise possibilities”.

Chain Letter stars Michael Bailey Smith as the “Chain Man” along with The Twilight Saga‘s Nikki Reed, Deadgirl‘s Noah Segan, and genre staples Brad Dourif, Keith David, and Betsy Russell. Matthew Cohen, Cody Kasch, Michael J. Pagan, Cherilyn Wilson, and Clifton Powell co-star in the flick, which tells the tale of a maniac who targets teens when they fail to forward chain email.

Check out the new Chain Letter trailer below, and look for a release date on this one soon.

    Chain letter is going to do big and great things things in the near future. There are stories in North Carolina that are some what similair…… A North Carolina Cheerleader from Millbrook High has been missing since November 13th. 16 year old Christina Taylor was the captain of the cheerleader team. At the time of her disappearance she was dating long term boyfriend and kicker on the football team Levy Meyers. Approximately an hour before her disappearance her friends reported that Christina had received text message threats stating “Break the chain, loose a life”. No one ever takes those messages serious, and I still don’t” stated Christina’s class mate Mandy.
