Hot new horror spec HATE NIGHT has hit the town with an enticing package. The horror/thriller is out from Justin Boyd and VJ Boyd (FX’s Justified.) Plot details are being kept tightly under lock and key, but the project has been pitched in the vein of The People Under The Stairs. Intrigue, Scott Milam, and Rubicon Entertainment are attached to produce.
I can now confirm that the hot project is out to Focus Features, Fox Searchlight, CBS Films, New Line Cinema, and Dimension Films, with more to come. Indie auteur Calvin Reeder is being packaged with the project, slated to direct. Reeder is known for his back-to-back Sundance features The Oregonian and The Rambler, the latter of which starred Dermot Mulroney, Natasha Lyonne, and Ali Larter. Reeder is repped by APA and Jeremy Loethen at Traverse Media.
Spec is now into:
New Line Cinema
Stay tuned for more info on this project as it develops!
