Super brief news as Black Death, Triangle, Creep and Severance director Christopher Smith is developing Detour, a US-based road movie thriller with elements of film noir. He won’t be directing Pride and Prejudice and Zombies, as unconfirmed reports were claiming as factual (the reason why you never read it here on BD).
Smith has just completed the second draft, which he told Screen Daily is “a modern re-spin on the film-noir genre with a structural shake up…. It’s about how one decision can carve two entirely separate destinies.”
The project, which centres around a roadtrip from Los Angeles to Las Vegas, has already received UK Film Council development funding. Unfortunately, no other details are available.
