Pretty Little Liars’ Ashley Benson is set to produce and star in 18 & Over, an upcoming pandemic slasher film. Benson co-created the film with Jimmy Giannopolous and Diomedes Raul Bermudez. The film has a star-studded cast, including Jon Foster, Jake Weary, Sky Ferreira, Luis Guzman, Winnie Harlow, Duke Nicholson, A$AP Nast, John Robinson, Paris Hilton, Pamela Anderson, and G-Eazy, who Benson was previously in a relationship with.
The film will be directed by Giannopolous from a screenplay he co-wrote with Bermudez. According to Deadline, Plot details are currently under wraps, other than the fact that it takes place during quarantine. G-Eazy composed the film’s score, which will be his first-ever film score.
Giannopolous stated about the film, “After deciding to shoot this film in the middle of the pandemic, we wanted to make something that would be fun but still a terrifying slasher for audiences during these tough times. A film relevant to today’s issues of a global pandemic, reality shows, isolation, Only Fans, and obsession”.
18 & Over producers are Purpose Film’s Bermudez and Artemis Picture’s Siena Oberman, Cassius Corrigan, and Benson. Jamin O’Brien serves as executive producer. Endeavor Content is handling worldwide sales.
18 & Over is currently in pre-production, so more details on plot and release date are sure to be announced soon.
