Ryan Murphy Overseeing Big-Screen Horror Story 'The Town That Dreaded Sundown'
Bruce Willis is also set to return for 'Sin City 2.'
Tired of horror movie remakes? Too bad, MGM don’t care. They’ve just hired Glee creator Ryan Murphy to oversee a remake of 1976 cult-classic The Town That Dreaded Sundown. Murphy will produce from a script by Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa, who recently wrote the Carrie remake. The original Sundown used a mockumentary approach to document the search for a fictional serial killer. With the remake being produced by the folks behind Paranormal Activity, expect the remake to follow a similar approach. [The Hollywood Reporter]
