The Wrong Turn series of horror films is somehow one of the few current long-running franchises that still gets a new entry every few years. While most of the subsequent films since the original have been direct-to-video fare, however, the latest film to feature the Wrong Turn name will reportedly be a bigger-budgeted reboot.
While there hasn’t been much news since its first announcement, the film’s cast and crew are apparently have already started shooting. The Wrong Turn reboot will be filmed in New Richmond, Ohio. And with the autumn season around the corner, it’ll be the perfect background for the movie’s setting featuring horrific killers and mayhem.
I must have missed a memo. Just learned film crews are in the Village of New Richmond through September 13 to film scenes for a “Wrong Turn” movie series.

In the latest film’s new plot…
“The updated version is described as a timely and topical meditation on society and its issues. A cross-country hiking expedition puts a group of friends in the land of an inclusive society, where they soon discover they are under a different rule of law, and may not be the victims they thought they were.”
The Wrong Turn reboot comes from Constantin Films and is being directed by Mike P. Nelson. Meanwhile original Wrong Turn writer Alan McElroy returned to write the script. With a combination of both new and old blood working together to reintroduce the franchise on a larger scale for modern audiences, this could be the film fans have been waiting ages for.
The Wrong Turn franchise has had more than enough bad installments since its first few entries, and unless you’re an absolute die-hard gore-hound who loves to get their schlock any way they can – you probably haven’t even seen them all. As such, it’s a smart move to finally revamp the property in a more appropriate way – let’s just hope this reboot still manages to satisfy fans of the franchise.
