Travis Tope Treks to The Town That Dreaded Sundown





Travis Tope Treks to The Town That Dreaded SundownA truly fresh face has signed on to the MGM meta redux of The Town that Dreaded Sundown, and we hope that said face eventually gets removed by some form of sharp implement. In just the movie of course. We're not that sick in the head. Then again...

According to THR newcomer Travis Tope has booked the male lead opposite Addison Timlin in MGM’s The Town That Dreaded Sundown.

Timlin plays Jami, a girl who survives a copycat massacre at the film’s annual tribute screening and sets out to solve the mystery of who’s recreating the unsolved Sackhead murders, using clues from her own past. Tope will play a classmate who befriends Timlin’s character and decides to make a documentary about the search for the killer. The flick begins shooting in May in Louisiana.

"American Horror Story" director Alfonso Gomez-Rejon will direct the remake of the 1976 Charles B. Pierce horror classic with Ryan Murphy and Jason Blum producing.

The original movie was based on five unsolved murders attributed to the Phantom Killer during three months in 1946 in and around the city of Texarkana on the border between Texas and Arkansas. Pierce shot large parts of the movie in and around Texarkana with extras recruited from local residents.

Look for more on this one as it comes.

I heard Steve Dash is claiming he wore the sack mask in the original...he's now charging an extra 5 bucks per autograph...

I was with this until I saw everyone from American Horror Story was involved.
