James Gunn’s horror lives on. After being fired by Disney after it was noted a 2012 piece he wrote called “The 50 Superheroes You Most Want To Have Sex With,” included inappropriate jokes about underage sex, a San Diego Comic-Con announcement on his Untitled Horror Project was cancelled. But a recent Sony Pictures release schedule lists Untitled James Gunn Horror Movie on the slate for a November 30th opening.
The horror project is headlined by Elizabeth Banks, who starred in Gunn’s creepy 2006 directorial debut, Slither.
Banks, who was featured in The Hunger Games films, Love & Mercy, Walk of Shame, and People Like Us, recently starred in Pitch Perfect 3, Wet Hot American Summer: Ten Years Later, and Power Rangers. Dunn’s credits include GLOW, Get Shorty and Legendary Dudas. Denman was in Parenthood, Outcast, and The Gift. Hagner appeared in Ingrid Goes West, Royal Pains, and HBO’s Veep. Jones appeared on Breaking Bad, The Office, How I Met Your Mother, The Layover and Red State.
The film also stars Jackson Dunn (Shameless), David Denman (13 Hours, Power Rangers), Meredith Hagner (Search Party, Younger) and Matt Jones (Mom, Home).
The Untitled James Gunn Horror Project was produced by David Yarovesky, who directed The Hive. The screenplay was written by Brian and Mark Gunn. It is being produced by The H Collective alongside Gunn and his company Troll Court Entertainment.
The upcoming horror thriller hasn’t released an official synopsis yet, but Gunn reportedly described the film as “personal, and different, and perfectly suited for our times. And, yes, terrifying.”
Untitled James Gunn Horror Movie will hit theaters on November 30th.
