Video Nasty: Seth Rogen to Produce Lionsgate’s New Horror Film
According to Variety, Lionsgate has successfully acquired writer Chris Thomas Devlin’s horror spec script titled Video Nasty with Seth Rogen attached to produce the project through his Point Grey banner. In addition, Jonathan Levine, who has worked with Rogen on 2019’s rom-com Long Shot, is being currently being eyed by the studio to helm the project.
Written by Chris Thomas Devlin, who is also the scribe for the upcoming Texas Chainsaw Massacre reboot, Video Nasty will center around three teens, who unknowingly rented a cursed VHS which resulted in them getting pulled into an 80s’ slasher movie that threatens to trap them forever.
The horror film will also be produced by Rogen’s longtime collaborator Evan Goldberg, who has previously worked together on Pineapple Express, Neighbors, The Interview, The Disaster Artist, Blockers, and Good Boys as well as Amazon’s hit superhero series The Boys.
Doctor Sleep producer Greg Silverman and Jon Berg will also be serving as producers through their Stampede Venture banner along with Point Grey’s Josh Fagen and James Weaver. Jim Miller and Chelsea Kujawa have been tapped to oversee for Lionsgate.
