Fango got some details and background on an upcoming horror feature called OLD 37 from Paul Travers, who wrote the script and is producing the project with Carrie Alton, Dayna Ghiraldi and Melissa Smolensky. Fango fave Kane Hodder is attached to co-star in the movie, which will roll later this year.
“We also have Sarah Hyland, who’s in the ABC sitcom MODERN FAMILY, attached as the lead girl,” Travers continues, “and Ernie Barbarash, who co-produced AMERICAN PSYCHO and produced the CUBE sequels, will be directing it.” Barbarash additionally helmed CUBE ZERO as well as STIR OF ECHOES: THE HOMECOMING and THEY WAIT; also part of the cast is young actor Max Ehrich. The executive producer is Steven Beer, whose credits include ZOMBIE HONEYMOON.
“It’s straight slasher horror, with a lot of good deaths and mayhem,” Travers says, adding that the project had its genesis when “I had a nightmare of these two creeps trying to pick me up in an ambulance and put me in this woodchipper they had in the back of it. I was like, ‘I’ve gotta write this,’ so I jotted down five pages, and then I read up on screenwriting and wrote the rest.”
