Alfonso Gomez-Rejon is in talks to direct a remake of The Town That Dreaded Sundown, which will be produced by Jason Blum of Blumhouse Productions and Ryan Murphy (American Horror Story). 

Gomez-Rejon has directed episodes of American Horror Story and served as second unit director on Ben Affleck's Argo. The film is a remake of the Charles B. Pierce movie, which was loosely based on a true story that follows Texarkana residents terrorized by the "Phantom Killer" during the late '40s.
