Wrong Turn: The Foundation is a 2020 American backwoods horror feature film directed by Mike P. Nelson (The Domestics) from a screenplay by franchise creator Alan McElroy (Spawn; Halloween 4; The Vampire Diaries; The Night Shift) with Robert Kulzer producing.
The first poster image (above) and official confirmation of the title of the Wrong Turn reboot have been posted on IMDb. Let’s hope they have put more effort into the movie than this poster!
Previously, director Mike P. Nelson posted an image (below) and message on Instagram: “The last three months have been absolutely insane. I can’t wait to show you all what we have been creating. Movie #2 blessed me yet again with such an amazing crew and a cast that carried the weight of this beast. Long nights in the woods, moldy caverns, moss-covered boulders, and skulls was our world for the hasty and dense 26-day shoot. This project was also special as it reunited me with my good friend, DP and collaborator @njunkersfeld [Nick Junkersfeld]. Over the last 10 years, Nick and I have been creating madness in Minnesota and I cannot wait to show you the madness we have created in Ohio with this one. Now onto the edit!”
It was revealed a while ago that Charlotte Vega (The Lodgers and American Assassin) will star. In addition, it has now been revealed that the cast features Mathew Modine (Stranger Things series; 47 Meters Down; Altar), Emma Dumont, Damian Maffei (The Strangers: Prey at Night) and Bill Sage (We Are What We Are).
Back in October 2018, we first posted that Constantin Film (Resident Evil movies) was rebooting the West Virginia cannibalistic in-bred franchise that began in 2003 and spawned another five entries. The first sequel, Wrong Turn 2: Dead End, marked Joe Lynch’s directorial debut.
Deadline has reported that the reboot is “a timely and topical meditation on society and its issues. A cross-country hiking expedition puts a group of friends in the land of an inclusive society, where they soon discover they are under a different rule of law, and may not be the victims they thought they were.”
Producer Robert Kulzer commented: “Alan’s re-interpretation of his own work and Mike’s vision are a frightening reflection of our world today: one person’s American dream is another’s worst nightmare.” Indeed.
In the new movie: “Six friends from New York taking a hiking trip to the beautiful West Virginia Mountains who unwittingly fall prey to a savage sect known as The Foundation.”
As of October 7th, the reboot of Wrong Turn is filming in Ohio.
