Director Karyn Kusama is signed up to head up new horror film 'Breed'
Karyn Kusama has signed up to direct horror movie 'Breed'.
The 48-year-old American independent film director, who worked on 2015 horror mystery 'The Invitation', has teamed up with her old production crew to direct the movie on behalf of 20th Century Fox.
The movie will be a 20th Century Fox first for producer Scott Frank, according to The Wrap, and will see 'The Invitation's' writers Phil Hay and Matt Manfredi be tasked with adapting the novel by Chase Novack.
Speaking about the project, Frank said: "'Breed' was the first piece of material I acquired and was a complete no-brainer - falling right into the sweet spot of the work that I'm trying to do in my partnership with Fox.
"The fact that I also get to collaborate with the talented likes of Phil, Matt, and Karyn only makes an already exciting project even sweeter."
Novack is also known to write under the name Scott Spencer, which he used to work on 'Endless Love' and 'Waking the Dead'.
'Breed' is centered on a couple living in New York who travel to Slovenia to have a procedure that will help them have children, after unsuccessful infertility treatment. But all is not what it seems, and 10 years later, when their twins grow up, they face some weird noises coming from their parents' room.
Casting information has not yet been announced.
