Chris Geere - H 2016

The British actor is known for his role on FXX's 'You're the Worst.'

You're the Worst's Chris Geere is ready for a good scare.

The British actor will star in a yet-to-be titled horror-comedy pic from Los Angeles- and Mexico-based Dark Factory Entertainment.

Geere will play a paranormal investigator on a reality TV series who goes in search for better ratings to save his show — a quest that takes him to Mexico, where he and his team attempt to produce a large spectacle in a haunted house that turns out to be truly possessed. With zero ghost-hunting skills — or really any other applicable skills — the team has to figure out how to escape.

First-time feature director Tony West will helm the project, which begins production in March in Villahermosa and Mexico City. Dark Factory’s CEO Daniel Posada will produce.

Geere broke through to American audiences on Stephen Falk's FXX comedy You're the Worst as the emotionally unavailable novelist Jimmy Shive-Overly.

The actor's feature film credits include M. Night Shyamalan's After Earth and The Last Showing. He will next appear on the big screen in Aaron Kaufman's thriller Urge, alongside Pierce Brosnan and Ashley Green.  

Geere is repped by UTA, the U.K.'s Waring and McKenna and Creative Partners.
