Ridley Scott's "CURS_R" On Quibi



Sir Ridley Scott, director of "Blade Runner", "Alien" and "Gladiator", is attached to executive produce a new 'horror gaming thriller' drama series, to be directed by Toby Meakins, titled "CURS_R", for the short-form mobile video platform 'Quibi', launching April 6, 2020:


"...in pursuit of an unclaimed $100,000 prize, a poor student decides to play an obscure, 1980's survival computer game. But the game curses her reality with terrifying choices and reality-warping challenges. 


"After a series of unexpectedly terrifying moments, she soon realizes she's no longer playing for the money, but for her own life as the game locks her into an inescapable cycle of mind-bending horror. Stopping the game is not an option, no matter what lies in wait or how bad will things get..."


"With all of the many platforms on which one can now show content", said Scott, "including the groundbreaking new format at 'Quibi', this is an extraordinary time to be a filmmaker".
