Gremlins director Joe Dante is producing a new horror movie titled Camp Cold Brook, and he’s tapped an SSR agent and a scream queen to star in the film.
According to Deadline, Chad Michael Murray (who played East Coast SSR chief Jack Thompson on Marvel’s Agent Carter) and Danielle Harris (Halloween) will headline the movie, currently in production. The premise for the film is somewhat interesting, if a tad generic, considering Harris has already starred in Camp Dread. Still, it's giving me a lot of Halloween: Resurrection (2002) vibes. So hey, I'll bite. Could be fun.
Here’s a description of the storyline and the characters played by Murray and Harris:
"Murray stars as reality TV producer and host Jack Wilson, who finds himself in a tough spot when his show is about to be cancelled. In a last ditch effort to spark ratings, he and his producers Angela (Harris) choose to film their next episode at the legendary Camp Cold Brook, which was host to a horrific incident where the young campers were drowned in a nearby creek 20 years ago. Their arrival begins like any other episode but the TV crew find that they get more than they bargained for."
Joining Dante in producing Cold Camp Brook are Warner Davis of Petri Entertainment, Mark Alan of Renfield Productions, and Jason Van Eman and Ross Marroso of Weathervane Productions. Andy Palmer (The Funhouse Massacre) will direct, from a script by Alex Carl (Reeves Road).
There’s no premiere date for the movie yet, but since they’re currently filming, my best guess is that it’ll hit the screens sometime in 2018. What do you think of the premise?
