Taissa Farmiga, Malin Akerman to be “FINAL GIRLS” in Meta Horror Comedy


In what sounds like a LAST ACTION HERO for the horror set, meta horror comedy THE FINAL GIRLS has attracted leads for its trapped in a movie premise.

Screen Daily is reporting Malin Akerman (WATCHMEN) and AMERICAN HORROR STORY’s Taissa Farmiga will star in THE FINAL GIRLS, about the daughter of an ’80s scream queen who becomes confined within one of her mother’s movies. Once on the other side, “the women are reunited and must fight off the film’s maniacal killer before the daughter can return to her life.”

Todd Strauss-Schulson, of A VERY HAROLD & KUMAR 3D CHRISTMAS, directs. Production on THE FINAL GIRLS hits Louisiana this spring. Sony Pictures Worldwide has pre-bought acquisitions for the title.
