Alexandre Aja (“Piranha 3D,” “The Hills Have Eyes”) has been set to direct Paramount Pictures’ self-contained thriller “Crawl” which is in pre-production and will begin shooting shortly.

The story follows a young woman who, while struggling to save her father during a Category 5 hurricane, finds herself trapped inside a flooding house and fighting for her life against Florida’s most savage and feared predators.

Aja wrote the most recent draft of the script, which was initially penned as a spec by Shawn and Michael Rasmussen. Sam Raimi and Craig Flores are producing.
