(FROM VARIETY) ? Spider-Man director Sam Raimi and reality vet Jay Bienstock (Survivor, The Apprentice) are developing an unscripted horror-themed show for The CW. The project, titled 13, will see players compete with one another in horror-related challenges until there is one contestant left standing. Bienstock said the inspiration for the show came from horror franchises like Friday the 13th and Nightmare on Elm Street. ”We want to cast it like a horror movie,” Bienstock told Variety. ”And shoot it a little differently as well. Think about those old movies — we want to put people in a place like that, where they have to deal with their fears and anxieties. They’ll end up surprising one another.” Raimi’s horror credits include The Evil Dead, The Gift, and Army of Darkness. (Variety)
