Acclaimed filmmaker Ridley Scott will produce a horror series for streaming platform Quibi.
Titled Curs_r, the thrilling series is being produced by Stigma Films and James Wilkinson and will be directed by Toby Meakins with a script from Simon Allen.
The series is about the quest to claim a $100,000 prize for which a student plays an obscure 1980s survival computer game. The game curses her reality, leaving her with frightening choices and reality-bending challenges.
The protagonist soon realizes that she is no longer playing the game for the money but for her very survival as her life gradually turns into an inescapable maze of horror.
Scott expressed his eagerness to work with the Quibi team in creating a series that would break boundaries in the horror genre.
With all of the many platforms on which one can now show content, including the groundbreaking new format at Quibi, this is an extraordinary time to be a filmmaker. We are very much looking forward to working with Jeffrey Katzenberg and his Quibi team, as well as with these very talented filmmakers, Toby and Simon, to create a series that promises to break new boundaries in the horror genre.Ridley Scott – geektyrant.com
