Legion M and Co-Op Entertainment have announced plans to create a film and comic book universe around a project called Girl With No Name. Described as a "female-led action-western," set in the Wild West in 1869, Girl With No Name will first appear in a groundbreaking comic book format: oversized, with heavy stock paper. Called A1Shot, the book is 40 pages, with art by Dani Strips (2000AD) and cover by Tula Lotay (Supreme: Blue Rose). The film will be written by Alex Ranarivelo (Dirt, Ride) and directed by Tanya Wexler (Hysteria). The comic is currently being projected for a spring 2019 release.

You Might Be the Killer was recently picked up for distribution by Screen Media. Directed by Brett Simmons (Husk, The Monkey's Paw), the film stars Fran Kranz (The Cabin in the Woods) as Sam, a camp counselor who discovers the people at his camp being murdered. So naturally, he calls his best friend, Chuck (played by Alyson Hannigan of Buffy the Vampire Slayer fame), a slasher movie expert, and asks for her help in figuring out who the killer is. As the two investigate, Sam begins to suspect he might be the killer -- as the title suggests. This meta-horror-comedy sounds like a blend between Friday the 13th and Scream.

Described by some as "Black Swan with cellos," The Perfection, directed by Richard Shepard (Sweetbitter) tells the story of a cello prodigy (Allison Williams, Get Out) who gives it all up to care for her ailing mother. After a decade away, she seeks out her mentor (Steven Weber, The Shining) and his newest star pupil (Logan Browning, Dear White People), and a twisted plan is set into motion. The Perfection premiered at Fantastic Fest last month and has been acquired by Netflix.
