The Hollywood Reporter says Adam Sandler’s production company Happy Madison, known for its comedies, will produce a thriller titled Shortcut as the inaugural picture of a nascent genre label it’s calling Scary Madison.
The movie centers on two brothers who come upon a rarely used shortcut in their new town — and soon discover the reasons why it’s so rarely used. Andrew Seeley, Shannon Woodward and Dave Franco will star.
The script was written by Scott Sandler and Dan Hannon, while Nicholaus Goosen, who directed Happy Madison’s Grandma’s Boy, will helm.
Production is scheduled to start next month in Saskatchewan, with a SAG waiver already granted should there be a strike.
