Stunning model turned actress Analeigh Tipton (below) has signed up for Blumhouse Production's new horror thriller 'Viral'. The star of romantic comedy ('Crazy, Stupid, Love') and romantic zombie comedy ('Warm Bodies') will play the role of Stacey, who along with her parents and sister Emma get quarantined in their city when a deadly virus infects their whole neighbourhood. 'Viral', previously known as both 'Peste' and 'Pest', will be directed by 'Paranormal Activity 3' and 'Catfish' duo Henry Joost and Ariel Schulman. Mark Tonderai ('House at the End of the Street') was originally attached to helm from a script by Barbara Marshall and 'Zombieland's Abigail Breslin was being touted to star. Whether Breslin is still in the running is not yet known, but the part of Emma is still yet to be filled. »
Analeigh Tipton is in negotiations to star in the horror-thriller Viral, formerly known as Pest, which has Henry Joost and Ariel Schulman (Catfish) attached to direct. We first reported on the project back in July, when Dimension Films picked up the distribution rights. At the time, Mark Tonderai was set to direct, but he is no longer involved in the project.
The story centers on a parasitic outbreak that causes its hosts to crave their fellow humans, with alien tentacles growing from their bodies. Analeigh Tipton is playing a teenager named Stacey, who lives in a peaceful suburb with her parents and younger sister Emma, when their lives are upended by this outbreak. They become trapped within their quarantined city as the infected grow more and more violent. More casting news is expected to come in the near future, as the filmmakers begin to lock in Analeigh Tipton's co-stars. »
