Gigi Saul Guerrero Set to Direct Horror Movie Based on Santa Muerte Mythology
Gigi Saul Guerrero is still riding a wave of success following the release of her feature film directorial debut, Culture Shock. Expect to see the timely shocker on many “Best Horror Movies of 2019” lists. Not one to rest on her laurels, today brings word that Guerrero has inked a deal with Screen Gems to helm a new horror movie, one based on Santa Muerte mythology.
Deadline broke the news:
It’s the first studio feature for Guerrero, who has been poised for a breakthrough and earlier this month signed a first-look film and TV deal with Blumhouse, under which she’ll write and direct scripted television programming and feature films for the studio. This comes after she wrapped an episode of Blumhouse Television’s The Purge for USA. She made her feature-length directorial debut with Into the Dark’s Culture Shock, an installment of the feature length episodes Blumhouse Television produces for Hulu.
