“CHEAP THRILLS'” Katz to Direct “YOU’LL BE THE DEATH OF ME”News Samuel Zimmerman
The filmmaker behind one of this year’s best is making a masked killer movie next.
E.L. Katz, who made his directorial debut with the Drafthouse-released horror/dark comedy CHEAP THRILLS and hilariously opened up October’s mega anthology THE ABCs OF DEATH 2 (“A is for Amateur”) is teaming with Lionsgate for his sophomore feature, YOU’LL BE THE DEATH OF ME. Scripted by Mark Hammer, YOU’LL BE… sounds as if a masked killer intrudes on a New York romcom when a young twosome’s flowering romance is stalked and sliced.
Katz previously co-wrote the early Adam Wingard feature POP SKULL. CHEAP THRILLS is great and now available on DVD, Blu and digital download. [Deadline]
