Eli Roth is reteaming with Eric Newman and Paris-based StudioCanal (The Last Exorcism) for the suspense horror Psycho Killer from Seven scribe Andrew Kevin Walker.

According to Variety, the film will mark the directorial debut of Zombieland producer Gavin Polone.

Psycho Killer tells the story of a nameless, masked murderer who leaves a trail of victims across the U.S. In a chance encounter on the plains of Nebraska, he kills a highway patrolman. The only witness, the patrolman's young wife -- also an officer -- sets out to hunt the killer down.

According to Gavin Polone, the first part of the film accompanies the serial killer, and then follows the paths of killer and officer until they converge.

Producers are seeking a female lead who is somebody audiences know but not a big star.

Psycho Killer is planning a late spring shoot in Michigan, with a budget in the mid-teens.
