Wes Craven Directs Rogue’s 25/8

Rogue Pictures has greenlit the thriller “25/8” which Wes Craven will direct and pen, his first original horror script since 1994’s “Wes Craven’s New Nightmare”.

The film follows a signature villain, a serial killer who turns up 15 years after his purported death, to kill the seven children born on that fateful night.

Craven says “it’s more a thriller than slasher film, and revolves around a young kid with a very dark past involving his family and his father” he tells Variety.

Rogue starts production in April.
