{TB EXCLUSIVE} Joe Johnson Begs You – “Don’t Hang Up”


By: Thomas Commonwealth

Joe Johnson’s spec DON’T HANG UP is moving in the right direction, as it is now set up at Altitude Entertainment with Alexis Wajsbrot and Damien Mace on board to direct.

Exact details on the film are being kept under wraps but it is being described as a contained thriller in the vein of “Hard Candy”, which, if you’re making a thriller, is always a good film to compare to. Brooklyn Weaver of Energy Entertainment, who reps Johnson, will produce along with Romain Philippe and Will Clarke.

Johnson is an up-and-coming scribe and after this sale, we are excited to see what the future holds for him.

Wajsbrot and Mace are making their feature directorial debut on the film. Wajsbrot previously served as a CG supervisor on “Percy Jackson: Sea of Monsters” and “Iron Man 3” and oversaw VFX on this year’s hit film “Gravity.” Mace has served as a digital artist and matte painter on “Avatar”, “Sherlock Holmes” and “Snow White and the Huntsman.” The duo teamed up for the horror short “Red Balloon”, which you can see here.
