Genre titans Simon Barrett, Jason Eisener and Fede Alvarez are teaming up on an UNTITLED TECHNO THRILLER at Good Universe, the company announced Tuesday.
Eisener (Hobo With a Shotgun) will direct from a script by Barrett (You’re Next), while Alvarez and Rodo Sayagues will produce under their Bad Hombre banner. Nathan Kahane, Joe Drake and Erin Westerman of Good Universe will executive produce alongside Jay Basu.
Story details are being kept under wraps.
Barrett is the fanboy favorite who wrote You’re Next and The Guest, while Eisener directed the cult film Hobo With a Shotgun and contributed segments to the horror anthologies The ABCs of Death and V/H/S 2.
Basu is an in-demand writer who’s currently working with Alvarez on Sony’s The Girl in the Spider’s Web. He’s also writing a Labyrinth spinoff for TriStar and the Jim Henson Co.
Bad Hombre was formed by Good Universe and Alvarez in February, and is dedicated to producing films across the horror, thriller and sci-fi genres.
Barrett is represented by manager Stuart Manashil and attorney Todd Rubenstein, while Eisener is repped by CAA and attorney Kim Stenton. Basu is repped by UTA, 42, Kaplan/Perrone and attorneys Peter Nichols and David Jelenko. Bad Hombre, Alvarez and Sayagues are represented by Manashil and attorney Karl Austen.
