Alex Ross Perry is definitely a filmmaker that doesn’t like to be put in any sort of box. His early films were these odd, but really fun, comedies like “The Color Wheel” and “Listen Up Philip.” Perry came back with “Queen of Earth,” which is a thriller. He’s also a credited writer on the recent Disney film, “Christopher Robin.” And just last week, his punk rock musical drama “Her Smell” hit theaters. Comedy, thriller, family film, and a musical drama. What’s left to do? Well, according to a new report, Perry has decided to add horror to his filmography.

Variety is reporting that Perry has signed on to write and direct the film “Rest Stop,” based on a short story from none other than Stephen King.
