James Gunn, writer and director of last summer’s blockbuster Guardians Of The Galaxy has teamed up with director Greg McLean (Wolf Creek) for his return to horror on ‘The Belco Experiment’.

Gunn wrote on his Facebook page: “The story revolves around the American Belco company in South America which is mysteriously sealed off at the beginning of a work day, and its employees are ordered to kill each other or be killed themselves. This starts an escalation of violence, where we discover the true nature of each and every Belco employee.

“The film will be directed by Greg McLean, who directed the Wolf Creek films, and it will be produced by myself, and Peter Safran, who produced Annabelle and The Conjuring. MGM will be financing. We’re in pre-production now and will be shooting in Bogota, Colombia in early June of this year.”

Gunn is no stranger to horror. Before his stint at Guardians, he wrote the Dawn of the Dead remake and directed the horror-com Slither.

Production starts in June and is expected to be released sometime next year.
