Scatter Light Prods. has picked up Curve, a woman-in-jeopardy thriller from Kimberly Lofstrom Johnson that once had Eva Mendez set to topline with Charles Stone at the helm. The story centers on a woman who offers a ride to a good Samaritan after he helps her fix her car. When the man tries to attack her, she attempts an emergency maneuver that lands her trapped in her car in a ravine, with the man waiting for her to weaken. Flaherty, a one-time employee of Benderspink, found the script when its option at Original Films lapsed. He brought it to his mentors, who then set it up with Scatter Light, a new production and financing entity that aims to make movies in the $5 million-$10 million range. “Curve” will be the company’s first project. No word on if Mendes or Stone are still attached.
