“Argo” second-unit director Alfonso Gomez-Rejon is in talks to direct, while Ryan Murphy and Jason Blum are up for producing the remake of 1976 horror classic “The Town That Dreaded Sundown” at MGM.
Loosely based on a true story, the action follows Texarkana residents terrorized by the “Phantom Killer” during the late 1940s.
Meanwhile, Universal Pictures has picked up an untitled sci-fi action project which “The Adjustment Bureau” director George Nolfi and “The Last Stand” scribe Andrew Knauer co-wrote.
The film is being setup as a potential producing and directorial vehicle for Nolfi. Michael Hackett (‘Payback’) also produces.
