Good news, horror fans!

Vertical Entertainment has acquired North American rights to the last film Wes Craven produced before his death this past summer. The Girl in The Photographs will be released sometime midyear in 2016, Deadline is reporting.

They added: From Alghanim Entertainment, Nick Simon is directing from a script he co-wrote with Osgood Perkins and Robert Morast. The film tracks the chaos that ensues when a celebrity photographer and his entourage drop in on a small town community to investigate the crimes of a local serial killer. The film premiered earlier this year in the Midnight Madness section of the Toronto International Film Festival. Kal Penn stars along with Claudia Lee, Kenny Wormald, Toby Hemingway, Luke Baines, Miranda Rae Mayo, Katharine Isabelle, and Mitch Pileggi.

It premiered at the Toronto International Film Festival back in September. The film, directed by Nick Simon, pegs Craven as an executive producer.

Back in 2014, Craven had this to say: “Sometimes you read a script and you just know. From first draft to final cut, Nick has told a unique story that will leave you wondering: Is it always good to be noticed? It has been a pleasure to work with Nick from his days in my WGA mentor group to picture lock. You’ll be hearing from him again.”

More info to come soon.
