Radio Silence (Southbound, Scream, Scream VI) is back in the director’s chair for a new “untitled monster thriller” from Universal Pictures.


While many of the film’s details are being kept quiet at this point, we know that Melissa Barrera, who starred in the last two Scream movies, is set to star in the horror film, according to Deadline.


Matt Bettinelli-Olpin and Tyler Gillett of Radio Silence will direct. The script was penned by Stephen Shields, with revisions by Guy Busick. Chad Villella is producing alongside William Sherak, Paul Neinstein, and James Vanderbilt for Project X Entertainment.


Deadline describes the film, “In the vein of the Studio’s recent hits like The Invisible Man and Renfield, this untitled monster thriller provides a unique take on legendary monster lore and will represent a fresh, new direction for how to celebrate these classic characters. Universal Monster films are rooted in the horror genre, with no restrictions on budget, rating, or genre. They are not part of a shared interconnected universe, which allows each film to stand on its own. This new direction is filmmaker-driven, inviting innovative filmmakers with original, bold ideas for these characters to develop the stories and pitch them.”


We’ll update you when we know more, but I’ll be honest, we’re down for anything from Radio Silence.
