  Paramount, Temple Hill Set Feature Version Of Horror Short ‘Laura Hasn’t Slept’ EXCLUSIVE: Paramount Pictures has made a deal to turn the horror short film Laura Hasn’t Slept into a theatrical feature. The short’s writer-director Parker Finn also will write and helm the film, and Temple Hill will produce. Finn is repped by Grandview and CAA. Laura Hasn’t Slept was set to premiere as SXSW in March, before the event was canceled. Despite that setback, the short film won the Special Jury Recognition Prize for SXSW’s Midnight Short category. The title character in the short is a young woman desperate to rid herself of a recurring nightmare. She seeks help from her therapist to confront the terror.

EXCLUSIVE: ViacomCBS teen brand Awesomeness is developing horror-comedy Mer from Orange Is the New Black alum Julie Lake and Liz Storm (Shelly, Lovely). Laura Prepon (Orange Is the New Black, That 70s Show) is attached to executive produce and direct the project.

Co-created by Lake and and her longtime writing partner Storm, Mer is described as a splashy horror-comedy about martini-swigging, man-eating mermaids on Martha’s Vineyard. The series explores a young woman grappling with newfound power and female metamorphosis through the point of view of a marginalized townie turned killer mermaid. The satirical horror-comedy unpacks feminist themes through the eyes of a girl who must live with the dual demands of her bleeding heart and a sudden urge to eat people.
