Last year we told you about an upcoming film called Peste, which was to be directed by Mark Ponderai (House at the End of the Street). Not only has the flick undergone a name change, but so too has the director been swapped out. Read on for the latest!
We've just learned via Bloody Disgusting that Peste has been re-named Viral and will now be directed by Henry Joost and Ariel Schulman, the team behind both Catfish and Paranormal Activity 3. Hit machine Blumhouse Productions will produce.
