Midnight Meat Train helmer Ryûhei Kitamura has signed on to direct No One Lives for WWE Films. Luke Evans, who was in the running to star in the Bourne Identity spin-off, The Bourne Legacy, and will be seen later this year as Zeus in Tarsem’s Immortals, will headline the horror feature.
Five years ago, WWE first dabbled with horror when it released the slasher See No Evil with wrestling personality Kane (Glen Jacobs) as psychopath Jacob Goodnight.
Reports Variety, No One Lives “revolves around a ruthless gang that takes a young couple hostage in an abandoned house in the middle of nowhere. When the captive girl is killed, the tables are unexpectedly turned, and the gang finds itself outsmarted by a seasoned killer.”
Evans will have a villainous role, but it is unclear if he will be the gang leader or the seasoned killer.
For director Kitamura, No One Lives marks his return to a U.S. production, having directed Baton and developed the TV series Strangers 6 after his adaptation of the Clive Barker short story.
