47 Meters Down and Strangers: Prey at Night director Johannes Roberts is currently in pre-production on the Resident Evil reboot. And today we hear he has yet another project in the works. This time it’s a contained thriller set on an international flight called, Flight.
Miles Chapman (Escape Plan) will pen the script based on a story by Roberts. James Harris, Mark Lane, Greg Lessans, and Rachel Reznick produce.
Strangers: Prey at Night centers on Mike and his wife Cindy who take their son and daughter on a road trip that becomes their worst nightmare. The family members soon find themselves in a desperate fight for survival when they arrive at a secluded mobile home park that’s mysteriously deserted — until three masked psychopaths show up to satisfy their thirst for blood.
Rated R for horror violence and terror throughout, and for language, the film sports a 40% on Rotten Tomatoes with a Critics Consensus that reads: The Strangers: Prey at Night may appeal to fans of the original who’ve been jonesing for a sequel, but its thin story and ironic embrace of genre tropes add up to a bloody step back.
