The Directors Of Catfish Set For Horror Film, Viral


Graduating from Paranormal Activity sequels to an ostensibly original project, Catfish directors Henry Joost and Ariel Schulman are heading into production on Viral.

As per Deadline, the film will be about:

Stacey, whose suburban life with her parents and sister Emma is upturned when a lethal parasitic virus spreads to their neighborhood and they're trapped within their quarantined city along with the increasingly violent infected.

Stacey will be played by Analeigh Tipton. The actress is 25 right now but I'll be you anything the character will be 19, tops.

It doesn't sound like this will be a fake documentary, like their three previous films, so we'll have to wait and see how well Joost and Schulman can pull off the language of a straight-up narrative feature.
