Paramount may not be moving forward with the new Friday the 13th, but the company is still determined to unleash some fresh horror and that’s definitely a good thing. Paramount has acquired the rights to Gasp, an online dating app horror that is based on the true stories of women who are killed by men they’ve met on dating apps.
Gasp will follow a female detective who falls in love with a cleared suspect, but soon worries that he may actually be the killer. It’s a timely tale that is extremely relevant to this digital love age and, if anything, the film could remind women – and men – to think twice before meeting up with someone they’ve met on an app. And that’s not a bad thing.
Gasp’s script is to be written by Mario Celaya and Jessica Sharzer. More as it comes!
