ABC News RadioWho better to develop a new slasher movie than the man known as Slash?

The rocker will produce a horror film with Revolver Picture Company that will be a throwback to 1980s flicks like Halloween and Friday the 13th, according to The Hollywood Reporter. The plot has not yet been revealed.

Slash got involved after meeting with some folks at Revolver. He tells The Hollywood Reporter, “They had an idea that tied in perfectly with a theme that I was working on at the time. From there, together with [screenwriter] Brian Sieve, I think we developed something awesome.”

The goal is that the movie will evolve into a franchise.

Slash isn’t new to the horror film genre — he produced 2013’s Nothing Left to Fear.
