Warp Films – who is responsible for both Kill List and Donkey Punch – has announced several new projects for this week’s Cannes market, a few of which slam right into our genre.
The first of several prominent book acquisitions is Rachel Ward‘s Numbers, a supernatural thriller “about a young woman who sees the dates of strangers’ deaths.” Paul Fraser will adapt.
Warp is working with is creative team Shynola, who will make sci-fi thriller Redmen, adapted from the novel “The Red Men” by Matthew de Abaitua. Stokes and Burke will also produce the debut feature of BAFTA short winner Paul Wright. “ ‘The Red Men’ is at heart a novel about a character wrestling with his conscience, set against a pervasive and Orwellian vision of contemporary society: surveillance, automation, biotechnology, and their implications for our humanity. ”
Lastly, Laura Hastings-Smith (who worked with Gutch on Steve McQueen’s Hunger) is pulling together the final financing for psychological horror This Little Piggy. “The thriller is about a young woman whose weekend camping with her new boyfriend and his daughter becomes a fight for survival. When her boyfriend goes missing, she and the child investigate the nearby farm and find themselves trapped like animals facing a terrifying death.”
