‘xXx 4’ & ‘Brightburn’ Outfit The H Collective Taps Christine Crokos To Direct Horror-Thriller ‘The Beast’

Exclusive: The H Collective, the La production outfit which is teaming up with Vin Diesel to produce the next installment in the xXx franchise, has set rising filmmaker Christine Crokos (Pimp) to direct their upcoming elevated horror-thriller The Beast.

The company landed Aaron W Sala’s 2018 Blacklist (2018) script in a six-figure deal last year. The story follows a woman who flees an abusive husband only to find herself the sole survivor of a plane crash. Stranded in the South Pacific on a deserted island, she must also grapple with horrors that tap into her worst nightmares while fighting off a creature of unknown origins. The H Collective, which has Sony sci-fi-horror Brightburn coming out in May, will produce and finance The Beast and is eyeing a fall 2019 shoot.

Crokos previously wrote, directed and produced Pimp starring Keke Palmer and executive produced by Lee Daniels. She made her directorial debut with Bang-Bang Wedding!
