Writing partners Nat Faxon and Jim Rash have a new movie in the works. According to Deadline, the two will write a slasher comedy for Fox called Dead Mall and also serve as executive producers on the project. Here’s more on the film:
The title comes from a growing national phenomenon, these second tier malls that are scattered about the country, skeletal shrines to a boom in shopping. When the shoppers stopped coming, the malls fell into disrepair and closed. Set in that backdrop, the comedy concerns an ensemble of 40-year old guys and girls, seemingly with enough brainpower to escape a slasher film-quality killer, but maybe not.
