Edward Shearmur is reteaming with director Iain Softley on the upcoming Curve. The film stars Julianne Hough & Teddy Sears and follows a young bride-to-be who is trapped in her overturned car off a deserted highway after deliberately crashing it in an attempt to escape a predatory hitchhiker. Jason Blum (Paranormal Activity, The Purge, Sinister) is producing the project through his Blumhouse Productions company, alongside Jaume Collet-Serra (Unknown, Non-Stop), Julie Yorn (Unstoppable, We Bought a Zoo) and Juan Sola (Anna). Shearmur has previously collaborated with Sofley on the features The Wings of the Dove, K-Pax and The Skeleton Twins. Curve is expected to be released on 2015.
Shearmur also continues to score Lifetime’s Devious Minds and has also scored the romantic comedy She’s Funny That Way (previously entitled Squirrels to the Nuts) starring Owen Wilson & Jennifer Aniston. The film premiered at this year’s Venice Film Festival and was picked up by Clarius Entertainment for a release in 2015.
