Bodies, Bodies, Bodies: Chloe Okuno to Helm A24 Horror Film (Women in Film)

Chloe Okuno will direct A24 horror movie Bodies Bodies Bodies.

The project was originally written by “Cat Person” author Kristen Roupenian, in the company’s first purchase of a spec script.

Okuno is the director of the award-winning AFI short film “Slut,” centered on a naive young girl becoming the target of a murderous sociopath when she attempts to reinvent herself to impress the boys in her small Texas town.

She is currently writing the reboot of Audrey Rose for Orion Pictures and Platinum Dunes.

“Bodies Bodies Bodies” is Roupenian’s foray into the screenwriting space.

The story infuses a “fresh, incisive perspective” into the horror genre, mixing together elements of shrewd character study, mystery and deep-seeded scares.
