“Conan The Barbarian” and horror franchise reboot specialist Marcus Nispel has found the Final Girl for his new teen-centric horror movie “Backmask”. The lucky gal is Brittany Curran, who has been cast as Reign, the female lead in Nispel’s film.
“Backmask” is the story of “a group of teenagers that accidentally releases an evil spirit that starts to possess them one by one.” Besides Curran, IMDB.com has Gage Golightly, Nick Nicotera, and Nick Nordella also in the cast.
Curran is most known for her recurring part on TNT’s dramedy “Men of a Certain Age”, but she’s done movies, including 2008′s “The Uninvited”.
Nispel will direct from a script by Kirsten Elms for Voltage Pictures. The producers recently took the film overseas to hawk to buyers at the Cannes Film Festival.
Nispel, of course, is no stranger to horror movies featuring pretty young people fleeing from murderous masked killers. He previously helmed reboots of “Friday the 13th” and “The Texas Chainsaw Massacre”, before veering off for a bit with action-adventure on the “Conan” reboot. “Backmask”, as far as I can tell, is an original horror movie. Well, as original as horror movies about endangered teens can be nowadays, anyway.
