EXCLUSIVE: Screen Gems has established Colin Minihan to compose and direct the thriller Urban Legend. Pic is on a quick track, and the studio is now casting the essential functions.

Minihan will present an iconic new slasher for the electronic age in a world where online urban legends have been born and continue in a frightening pace. The film will centre on a varied cast of school students as they browse a series of bizarre deaths which resemble urban legends connected into the darkest corners of social networking.

Mike Medavoy and Benjamin Anderson will create for Phoenix Pictures. Eric Paquette and Michael Bitar will oversee for Screen Gems.

Minihan’s micro budget feature Everything Makes You premiered to strong reviews at SXSW, landing Rolling Stone’s 10 Best Horror Movies of the Year (2018) in addition to getting a NY Times Critics’ Pick.

Minihan is repped by Marc Manus in Zero Gravity, CAA, and Barry Littman in Hansen Jacobson.
