The Horror Honeys: Honey Buzz ~ 'It Follows' Director's New Project Picked Up

Honey Buzz ~ 'It Follows' Director's New Project Picked Up


Director David Robert Mitchell
News from Cannes

It was inevitable that as soon as It Follows director David Robert Mitchell announced his new project, it would get picked up faster than a natural blonde at a casting call. And sure enough, that's what happened, when his project Under the Silver Lake went up for grabs.

Actor Andrew Garfield, free of the Spidey-suit
A24, a production company having a hell of a good year, acquired the rights to Under the Silver Lake, a modern-day, LA-based crime noire, that Mitchell wrote and plans to direct himself. Actor Andrew Garfield, just off 99 Homes and Martin Scorsese's soon-to-be-released Silence, has already signed on to star in an unnamed role. While It Follows initially released to rave reviews, it became divisive in the horror community, grossing $20 million with a worldwide release. 

Given that Under the Silver Lake isn't a horror film, it will be interesting to see what Mitchell does in an entirely different genre. Production is set to begin sometime at the end of the summer.
