20th Century Fox goes on a Thrill Ride
20th Century Fox has acquired Thrill Ride, an original idea for a teen horror comedy by Andrew J. Cohen & Brendan O’Brien (“Neighbors”).
Cohen will direct and Peter Warren is set to write the screenplay.
Set at a particularly cruel high school where bullying has become the norm, the story takes place at Senior Night, when the school rents out an amusement park for the entire senior class where everyone rides the rides and plays the games as much as they want with no lines and no rules. Unfortunately, students start dying on the rides in elaborate ways. All the exits are sealed, and there is a killer on the loose turning all the rides into ways of punishing the bullies and the so called bad people at school. Kids from all different cliques have to band together to figure out who the killer is and how to stop them.
Chernin Entertainment will produce.
