According to Deadline, the logline is under wraps. However, the film has been described as an “R-rated and terrifying love letter to the horror genre, centering on an ensemble cast.”

Developed by Supermassive Games, 2015’s Until Dawn is a video game featuring an interactive, choice-based narrative that follows eight friends trapped at a secluded lodge on Blackwood Mountain. Two of the group’s friends mysteriously vanished at the same lodge one year prior. This time, the group realizes they are not alone, and must battle a killer on the loose as well as the elements to survive the night.

Until Dawn’s popularity led to a spinoff, Until Dawn: Rush of Blood, a prequel, The Inpatient, and a spiritual successor, The Quarry. A remake of Until Dawn is scheduled to arrive this fall on PlayStation 5 and PC.
