Actor/director/composer Robert Schwartzman’s distribution company Utopia is now setting its sights on developing its own original content, under the Utopia Originals moniker. For their first venture, the company is teaming with Norman Reedus’ production banner bigbaldhead as well as Shout! Studios for a TV adaptation of the cult horror classic Sorority House Massacre which was executive produced by indie trailblazer Roger Corman and directed by Carol Frank.
The 1986 movie is exactly what it suggests: a story about sorority sisters who are stalked by a psychopathic killer who shares a telepathic link with one of the girls. The horror spawned two sequels that included Sorority House Massacre II and Sorority House Massacre III: Hard to Die. Schwartzman and Reedus will produce the TV adaptation.
