Boris to write, direct ‘Creature’ feature

$10 million horror pic to begin shooting in September

Bob Boris will write and direct the $10 million horror pic “Creature” for Barnholtz Entertainment and Licht Mueller FilmCorp.

The film will be produced by Jeff Mueller, Andy Licht and Barry Barnholtz. Shooting will begin in September, possibly in Mexico.

The film — described as “Scream” meets “Predator” — is about a group of college freshmen who travel to New Mexico to disprove the existence of the “Chupacabra” monster.

According to Barnholtz, “Creature” will be financed through a mixture of equity participation and pre-sales. A foreign sales agent will be announced at Cannes. Domestic distribution is not yet set.

Boris previously directed the comedy “Oxford Blues,” starring Rob Lowe, and the HBO pic “Frank and Jesse,” starring Bill Paxton.

Mueller and Licht produced “Cable Guy” with Judd Apatow and exec produced “Waterworld.” Their next film is Rodman Flender’s “Idle Hands” for TriStar Pictures.

Barnholtz is a co-founder and former senior vice president of acquisitions of Trimark Pictures. His producing credits include Alex Wright’s “The First 9-1/2 Weeks” and J. Michael McClary’s “Curse of the Starving Class.” He was repped by John Dellaverson of Loeb & Loeb.

Boris is currently scripting the TV miniseries “Stealth” for producer John Davis and the Fox network.

He is managed by Wyman Management’s Brad Wyman and Joel Baral, and repped by Innovative Artists.
