Scribes Charlie & Chris Frazier have set up a new project at IM Global, the action thriller MORTAL. It comes after they landed on the Tracking Board 2016 Hit List with their spec script Aurora, a sci-fi thriller about an escaped psychiatric patient convinces a neuroscientist her memories have been tampered with to keep her from discovering the true nature of her research.
The logline for this new project is currently under wraps, but the notion of an action thriller is certainly within the purview of the Fraziers.
Currently, they have an untitled heist movie set up at Warner Bros., as well as spy thriller In the Company of Lies about a woman who travels to Russia to find out the truth about her husband, only to uncover deeper secrets than she expected, in development at Rat Entertainment. Finally, they’re working on the road trip comedy Ashes to Asheville with Christine Lahti attached to direct.
For IM, it’s another title on an already crowded slate of projects they currently have in development, including the Tom Hanks and Emma Watson-led feature The Circle and Zoe co-starring Charlie Hunnam and Léa Seydoux. Most recently they worked on Mel Gibson’s Hacksaw Ridge and Martin Scorsese’s upcoming film Silence.
Previously, the Fraziers wrote three short films: Clemency in 2010 and Kowalczky and Tijuaneros in 2009.
They’re repped by WME.
