The latest reboot comes in the form of 90’s slasher, Urban Legend. Screen Gems has chosen director, Colin Minihan (What Keeps You Alive) and are currently in the casting process.
The new film will center around the digital age and the Urban Legends therein.
“The movie will center on a diverse cast of college students as they navigate a series of bizarre deaths that resemble urban legends linked to the darkest corners of social media.”
The original 98′ film took place on a campus being terrorized by a killer wearing a parka, whose M.O. was making each murder look like a famous urban legend. The fun of watching the film was watching those urban legends come to life on screen.
An Urban Legend film that is setup for the digital age has a lot of stuff to choose from. Tons of creepy pasta to go around for miles and in the age of us running parallel with Black Mirror the new film could take a lot of interesting turns if played correctly .
The real question here is will original cast members return? Sure would be cool to see Rebecca Gayhart back on the big screen and in this franchise.
What do you guys think? Have any digital age urban legends that you think should make the list for the the film? Let us here them in the comments section.

But the thing that makes Halloween such an enduring film – something these lesser copycats failed to realize – was Carpenter’s simple approach to the story. Click here to continue…
