Pulitzer Prize-winning author Michael Cunningham, of the novel The Hours and the feature films Evening and A Home at the End of the World, has taken an unusual career detour into penning a slasher screenplay. Variety reports that Beautiful Girl was born of Cunningham’s love of scary genre pieces. He told them:
While I was writing about Virginia Wolff, my mind was never far removed from the idea of girls in bikinis being hacked up by guys wearing hockey masks and I vowed that if I ever had a good idea, I would write one of these scary movies.
