Bloody Disgusting reports that filming has officially begun in Ohio for Constantin Films‘ new Wrong Turn movie, based on the long-running horror franchise that centers on a group of cannibals in West Virginia as they hunt down those who dare to trespass their area. The film will be led by Spanish-British actress Charlotte Vega (The Lodgers).

The Wrong Turn reboot will feature a cross-country hiking expedition that puts a group of friends in the land of an inclusive society called The Foundation, described as people who have lived in the mountains sine before the Civil War. The friends soon discover they are under a different rule of law, and may not be the victims they thought they were.
The film will be directed by Mike P. Nelson (The Domestics) from a script written by the original film’s writer Alan B. McElroy.

The horror franchise began in 2003 with a theatrical film that was a modest box office success and received generally mixed reviews, spawning a direct-to-video franchise made up of two sequels and three prequels running up to 2014 before going dormant.
