Taken from Deadline:
Stef Beaton, Alex Brown, Georgie Storm Waite, Rianne Senining, and British actress Charlotte Spencer are set to star in Getaway, a horror film that will explore the “Momo Challenge”, an internet hoax about nonexistent social media challenge that claimed to drive users to commit dangerous and harmful acts. Directed by Lilton Stewart III, the flick follows a group of unsuspecting teenagers who, in their last summer before college, find themselves in a secluded cabin in the woods where unusual occurrences unfold. In ghost story fashion, one tells the story of the urban legend, MOMO, a strange spirit of a bird-like woman that taunts its victims with specific personal details and violent commands via text message and phone calls. What starts out as a harmless prank soon turns more sinister over the next 24 hours as the teens start disappearing without any motive or pattern. Emagine Content and November 11th Pictures are producing in collaboration with SorenFilms Productions and Lady of the Light Productions.
