After recently leading the blockbuster slasher sequel Scream VI, The Hollywood Reporter brings the word that Melissa Barrera found his next horror project in the form of a movie titled The one. Nicholas Hoult (Renfield) and Lana Condor (To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before trilogy) have also been tapped to join the cast of the erotic horror project, produced by Daisy Jones and Six’s Riley Keough.
What to Expect from The One?
“The film is a terrifying horror about the romantic and psychological warfare waged in our beloved popular entertainment – and also asks… are we, the audience, complicit?” read the synopsis. “This is followed by Taylor (Barrera), who makes a last-ditch effort to find love by becoming a contestant on a reality dating show. Now it’s up to herself and two other women to compete to get Mason’s (Hoult) heart, Taylor begins to feel that the showmanship is gone, and the play becomes terrifyingly real. Amidst the opulent beach setting, fairytale dates and ever-flowing champagne, the pursuit becomes obsession and rivalry becomes betrayal as truth itself fades away.
Described as an “erotic nightmare,” The One will be written and directed by Kevin Armento and Jaki Bradley. Keough is producing the project through his Felix Culpa banner with Hoult for Dead Duck Films. It will also be produced by Whitaker Lader and Gina Gammell, with HanWay Films handling worldwide sales.
“We’ve been dreaming of this project for years, and we’re thrilled to bring it to life with our true dream team,” Armento and Bradley said in a joint statement. “Nick, Melissa, Riley, and Lana are some of the most exciting talents around, and their passion for this film – shared by our amazing production team – makes us even more excited to make this dream a reality.” truth.”
