Georgina Campbell and Logan Miller have signed on to star in Gavin Polone’s Psycho Killer, scripted by Se7en writer Andrew Kevin Walker
New Regency is gearing up to go into production on a horror thriller called Psycho Killer, based on a screenplay written by Se7en scribe Andrew Kevin Walker… and if such a project sounds familiar to you, it may be because Psycho Killer has been making its way through development hell for nearly fifteen years. It first hit the news back in early 2009, when Limp Bizkit frontman Fred Durst was set to direct. Durst had moved on by late 2010, by which time Eli Roth was planning to produce it with Eric Newman, his co-producer on The Last Exorcism. They eventually moved on as well. Gavin Polone, producer of Zombieland and the Walker-scripted 8MM, signed on to direct the film while Roth and Newman were involved and has held on to the helm ever since. And it looks like he’s going to see it all the way through production. Deadline reports that Polone is still set to direct the film and has cast Georgina Campbell (Barbarian) and Logan Miller (Escape Room) in lead roles.
Campbell will be taking on the role of Jane Thorne, a police officer who makes it her mission to take down a serial killer referred to on the news as the ‘Satanic Slasher,’ following the murder of her state trooper husband.
Miller’s character is Marvin, a goth-type nebbish who works for the mysterious Pendleton in his massive mansion. Pendleton is so mysterious, Deadline didn’t even explain who they were referencing there.
New Regency is producing Psycho Killer with Roy Lee, Walker, Miri Yoon, and Matt Berenson. Constantin Film is co-financing. Filming is expected to begin in early spring… so right now, basically.
