And we’ve got another low-budget horror thriller — with, of course, possible found footage elements — in the works, as Deadline reports Dimension Films have acquired the horror script Garden District. Written by Tony Jaswinski and Luke Goltz, the film is about “a trio of self-declared mythbusters who get in over their heads while investigating what they think is just another hoax. It involved a mysterious video of a vampire’s execution that goes viral, and the mythbusters head to New Orleans to see if it’s phony.” David Kirschner and Corey Sienega will produce.
With the rise of ghost-related shows on TV today, it’s hard not to have seen some form of this grace the small screen. I have watched some of those shows — only when flipping channels, I swear! — and I couldn’t help but be reminded of A&E’s Fact or Faked: Paranormal Files. (That show involves a group of paranormal investigators who go to various places to see if viral “ghost” videos are fact or faked.) However, Garden District adds vampires to the whole found footage craze, and that’s at least partially new, in this context. I’m more partial to vamps than ghosts, too, so maybe there’s hope for this one. Well, maybe.

His latest work is a pair of scores for films that were both released this month, Jake Paltrow‘s neo-western Young Ones and the journalistic thriller Kill the Messenger starring Jeremy Renner. Johnson has also been producing a couple albums and […]
