Nat Faxon and Jim Rash Are Writing a Slasher Comedy “Dead Mall”
From the looks of it, if you loved The Final Girls, you’ll probably love this too.
Nat Faxon and Jim Rash who have gained notoriety as writers for their grounded dramedy and heartfelt coming-of-age stories are taking a leap into a whole other genre with their latest project that they’re writing and directing, “Dead Mall”.
Like The Final Girls, there will be a certain sense of slasher film self-awareness by the group trying to escape a slasher film killer, but this time, they’re at an abandoned mall.
We can’t wait to see what Faxon and Rash come up with, especially given how much of a departure this is from their previous work, save for Rash being on Community.
