Independent financier and production company Kerry Kimmel and Pollack has teamed with Eric Thompson’s Vigilante Entertainment to acquire feature film and TV rights to Gregg Olsen‘s young adult series Empty Coffin, reports Variety.
KK&P and Vigilante will co-finance and co-produce the first title in the series, “Envy,” “a paranormal thriller that follows twin sisters Hayley and Taylor Ryan as they try to unravel the mystery surrounding the death of their friend. The girls use their talents to solve the crime and in the process, uncover the origin of their own powers.”
KK&P’s CEO Michael Pollack and prexy Mark Morgan (“The Twilight Saga”) will produce with Eric Thompson, Brett Hudson and Kami Garcia.
“The material is sharp, funny and eerie,” said Thompson, who just produced the indie horror pic Rites of Spring. “It’s edgy with protagonists who are modern day teen sleuths with a big family secret.”
