In addition to upcoming horror movie The Flood, man-eating alligators will also return to the screen in The Bayou, a horror movie from the producers of 47 Meters Down and Fall.
Deadline reports today that Tea Shop Productions is behind The Bayou, being directed by Matthew Ninaber (Death Valley). Architect is launching the project for sales in Cannes.
The movie “crash-lands a group of friends in the water-logged, inhospitable Louisiana swamplands where they’re hunted by a fearsome, primordial apex predator.”
“Megan Best (Seance) leads the unfortunate survivors, out of their depth, who are picked off one-by-one by a relentless pack of gators, led by a ferocious alpha female.”
The Bayou is written by Gavin Mehrtens from a story by Ashley Holberry.
Calum Gray from Architect said in a statement, “The Bayou is a thrilling, no-holds barred, white knuckle ride that will keep today’s audiences wholly immersed and on the edge of their seats. The movie has a whole heap of tricks up its sleeve and will delight audiences with its ingenuity and fresh take on the survival genre.”
