Christopher Landon Lands Werewolf Film After Scream 7 Exit

It only took a week or so, but Christopher Landon (Freaky, Happy Death Day) has already found himself seated in the director’s chair again, after his departure from Scream 7. Deadline reports Landon will direct Lionsgate’s Big Bad, based on a short story by Chandler Baker (Whisper Network) who will also write the script.

The short story was originally featured in the anthology novel Creature Feature, “a collection of devilishly creepy stories that tingle the spine and twist the mind.” Big Bad is described, “The Strauss family is on knife’s edge. Sam is a resentful stay-at-home dad. Rachel feels the restlessness in her blood returning. Their children are getting out of hand. And a recent mudslide has forced the wolves out of the woods to look for food. As dusk falls and tensions rise, the family must come together to survive the night — from the threats outside and those within.”
