‘Final Girls’ set up at New Line

London's Groundswell producing; Strauss-Schulson directs

Michael London and his Groundswell Prods. have set up horror comedy “Final Girls” at New Line with “A Very Harold & Kumar Christmas 3D” helmer Todd Strauss-Schulson directing.

Described as a mix between “Back to the Future” and “Friday the 13th,” the story follows a girl grieving the loss of her mother, who was a scream queen in the 1980s. When she and her friends are mysteriously sucked into the world of her mother’s most famous horror movie, Max is reunited with her mom and must face the pic’s crazed killer.

Scribes Mark Fortin and Josh Miller are currently doing revisions on the spec script they sold to Groundswell.

New Line will distribute, with London and Jocelyn Hayes-Simpson producing through Groundswell. David Neustadter and Walter Hamada will oversee for New Line.

Project will be the first Strauss-Schulson has boarded since “Harold & Kumar” bowed on Nov. 2. The pic has grossed around $28 million at the domestic B.O.

Strauss-Schulson is repped by UTA and Mosaic. Fortin and Miller are repped by CAA and Mosaic.
