Jennifer Lynch Directing Halloween Movie From ‘Walking Dead’s’ Gale Anne Hurd

CBS Films has tapped Jennifer Chambers Lynch to direct its horror movie “Hellfest” with Gale Anne Hurd producing.

The film is set at a horror theme park during Halloween where a night of fun turns deadly as a costumed killer begins slaying unsuspecting patrons who believe that it’s all part of the festivities.

“We have loved the concept of ‘Hellfest’ since Gale brought it to us and we have been waiting for exactly the right director,” said CBS Films President Terry Press. “Jennifer came to us with both the passion and the vision necessary to make ‘Hellfest’ a terrifying Halloween tradition.”

Production will begin this winter at an undisclosed theme park. Alex Ginno and Mark Ross are overseeing the project for CBS Films, and Phillip Kobylanski is shepherding the project for CBS Films.

Lynch, the daughter of David Lynch, has directed episodes of “The Walking Dead,” “Quantico,” “Teen Wolf,” “The Last Ship,” and “Wayward Pines.” Her films include “Boxing Helena,” “Surveillance,” “Hisss,” “Chained,” and “A Fall From Grace.”

Hurd is best known as the executive producer of “The Walking Dead.” Her feature credits include the first three “Terminator” movies, “Aliens,” “The Incredible Hulk,” and “Armageddon.”

Lynch is represented by Gersh and managed by Fineman Entertainment.
