Last year we told you about an upcoming film called Peste, which was to be directed by Mark Ponderai (House at the End of the Street). Not only has the flick undergone a name change, but so too has the director been swapped out. Read on for the latest!
We’ve just learned via Bloody Disgusting that Peste has been re-named Viral and will now be directed by Henry Joost and Ariel Schulman, the team behind both Catfish and Paranormal Activity 3. Hit machine Blumhouse Productions will produce.
Last we heard, Abigail Breslin was attached to star, but we’ve gotten no word yet as to whether or not she’s still on board. Hopefully we’ll know more real soon.
A teenage girl begins a video documentary about her life for a school project just as a terrifying virus sweeps through her small town. Quarantined with her family, she thinks they are out of harm’s way, but she soon learns that the virus has invaded their house. Her video documents the family’s frantic struggle to find a cure before they are completely taken over by the outbreak.
The script was written as the first part of a planned trilogy.
