While it’s not quite as popular as other similarly themed horror franchises, the Wrong Turn series of films have remained consistently popular with their following of fans over the years. As such, a reboot of the property has been in development for awhile now. The movie has finally wrapped filming, and now we’re getting our first look at proper promotional material for the film which is newly titled Wrong Turn: The Foundation.
Specifically, we’ve been given a new official poster for the film which advertises the new title and notes that the movie is “coming soon.” You can see it down below. It’s an interesting poster for sure, one that teases a new look and aesthetic for the franchise which has so long depended on the same style with the majority of its installments. It’ll be interesting to see how this new film will try to change things up.
It’s worth noting that the film comes from director Mike P. Nelson, and that it was written by original Wrong Turn screenwriter Alan B. McElroy. Obviously there’s a lot of potential to work with here, so hopefully they came up with a concept that will not only work with long time fans but also entice new audiences into the franchise.
In Wrong Turn: The Foundation…
“The updated version is described as 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.”
The new film stars Matthew Modine (“Stranger Things”, 47 Meters Down), Damian Maffei (The Strangers: Prey at Night, Haunt), Bill Sage (“Hap and Leonard”), Emma Dumont (“The Gifted”), Valerie Jane Parker (“Greenleaf”), Chaney Morrow (Haunt) and David Hutchinson (“American Horror Story”).
Dylan McTee, Adrian Favela, Adain Bradley, Jeremy Ambler, Cory Scott Allen, Gary Ray Stearns, Rhyan Elizabeth Hanavan, Vardaan Arora, Mark Mench, Joshua Stephen Campbell, Jennie Malone, Brian James Fitzpatrick and Mark Angel also star.
The movie is expected to be out sometime in 2020.
