Patrick Lussier, who edited the first three Scream movies and directed My Bloody Valentine 3D, is helming a new horror movie called Play Dead, which is currently in post-production.
Screen Daily reports that the film “centres on criminology student Chloe, who fakes her own death to break into a local morgue to steal a piece of evidence that ties her younger brother to a crime. Once inside, she discovers the coroner is using the business as a front to sell body parts. When the coroner discovers Chloe is not dead, a game of cat-and-mouse ensues.”
Bailee Madison (The Strangers: Prey at Night) stars in Play Dead alongside Jerry O’Connell (Satanic Panic), Anthony Turpel (Love, Victor), Chris Butler (True Blood), Chris Lee (Legacies), and Jorge-Luis Pallo (American Horror Story). Adam Mason and Simon Boyes write the script for the film, which is being produced by 47 Meters Down director Johannes Roberts.
