Duplass & Brice Plan For ‘Creep’ Trilogy

Patrick Brice Mark Duplass

RADiUS-TWC have purchased the rights to thriller CREEP, written by Mark Duplass (SAFETY NOT GUARANTEED, YOUR SISTER’S SISTER) and directed by newbie Patrick Brice. The company behind fellow horrors INSIDIOUS and PARANORMAL ACTIVITY, Blumhouse Productions, have produced the project.

Tom Quinn and Jason Janego, presidents of RADiUS, have commented on the news, saying:

“We jumped at the opportunity to work with Mark again…CREEP is wry and unnerving with a shock ending that one has come to expect from Blumhouse. The film played through the roof at SXSW and it was abundantly clear that audiences have a huge appetite for these characters.”

‘A huge appetite for these characters’ sounds about right, especially considering the goosebump-rasising synopsis:

Looking for work, Aaron (Brice) comes across a cryptic online ad: $1,000 a day. Filming service. Discretion is appreciated.

Low on cash and full of naivete he drives to a cabin in a remote mountain town where he meets Josef (Duplass), his cinematic subject for the day. Josef is sincere and the project seems heartfelt, so Aaron begins to film. But as the day goes on, it becomes clear that Josef may not be who he says.

Certainly lives up to its name! This sounds a little like SAFETY NOT GUARANTEED (the advert-in-the-paper thing) but with a psychological-thriller twist. I’m not a huge fan of the genre (I’m a wimp) but even I’m intrigued.

Alongside the news that RADiUS have picked up the rights, it’s been announced that CREEP will spawn two sequels, morphing into a creepy (sorry!) trilogy. Exciting stuff!

Considering Jazmine grew up watching CARRY ON SCREAMING, THE LION KING and JURASSIC PARK on repeat for weeks on end, it made sense for her to study film at London South Bank University. It’s also a good thing that her course requires a lot of sitting down because she’s very accident-prone. When she’s not examining her bruises, she likes pretending that she doesn’t live in Southend-On-Sea and spends hours mindlessly blogging. Favourite films include BLUE VALENTINE, ETERNAL SUNSHINE OF THE SPOTLESS MIND and TOY STORY 2.
