The project, which hit the market late Monday from Verve, entered into a three studio bidding war that culminated in a high six figure deal with Paramount winning the project and setting Aperture Entertainment and Safehouse Pictures to produce. Aperture’s Adam Goldworm and Safehouse’s Joby Harold and Tory Tunnell will produce. Details on the project are being kept under wraps, but it’s being pitched as a unique spin on the horror thriller tropes of today.
