Director of such recent horror films as The Descent and Doomsday, Neil Marshall is looking to bring a little terror to your favorite family theme park. Marshall is currently in the early stages of discussion with CBS Films to direct their new horror project, Hellfest. The plot of Hellfest follows a costumed killer who singles out unsuspecting theme park attendees to slaughter on Halloween night. The studio plans to start production by the summer of 2012, making this Marshall’s next movie project. If successful, there are hopes to turn the project into a franchise to fill the void that has been left by the Saw, Final Destination and (hopefully) Paranormal Activity series. Hit the jump for more.

game-of-thrones-season-twoDeadline reports that Marshall is in talks to direct the project, his first since 2010’s Centurion. While Hellfest would be Marshall’s next movie, he is currently finishing up his directorial effort for “Blackwater,” an episode in the HBO series Game of Thrones, based on the popular series of novels by George R. R. Martin. The second season of Game of Thrones will start in April of 2012, with the Marshall-directed episode slated to be the ninth of the season.
