Dave Franco and Emma Roberts have closed deals to star in the Lionsgate YA thriller “Nerve.”
Henry Joost and Ariel Schulman are directing, with Allison Shearmur producing through her banner along with Anthony Katagas.
Based on the Jeanne Ryan novel, the pic follows a high school senior who finds herself immersed in an online game of truth of dare, where her every move starts to become manipulated by an anonymous community of “watchers.”
HOLLYWOOD – “Scream Queens,” which begins production soon in New Orleans, has added Joe Manganiello (“True Blood”), Lea Michele (“Glee”), Abigail Breslin (“Little Miss Sunshine”) and Keke Palmer (“Madea’s Family Reunion”) to its cast, the Fox network announced Saturday (Jan. 17) at the Winter TV Tour. Previously announced cast members are Emma Roberts (“American Horror Story”) and Jamie Lee Curtis (“Halloween”).
Ariana Grande was announced as a “Scream Queens” guest star in a recurring role.
A comedy-horror anthology series covering 15 episodes, “Scream Queens” is slated for a fall slot on Fox’s schedule. The series comes from “Glee” creators Ryan Murphy, Brad Falchuk and Ian Brennan. FX’s “American Horror Story: Coven” and “American Horror Story: Freak Show,” also from Murphy, both were filmed in New Orleans.
“Ryan has proven over the years that he has just great instincts for building characters that people just care about and fall in love with,” said Gary Newman, co-chair and CEO of Fox Television Group. “He brings an outrageousness to what he does that I think is his kind of unique signature.”
Noting that the first season of “Scream Queens” will be set in a sorority house, Newman said that Murphy is “literally the perfect person to be doing this.”
Murphy has assembled his cast so far without sending out scripts — to either the actors or the network.
