The Machinist, Transsiberian and Vanishing on 7th Street helmer Brad Anderson has come on to replace Joel Schumacher as director of Troika Pictures’ thriller The Hive, writes Variety.
“Set against the backdrop of a 911 emergency center, fast-paced suspense pic follows a 911 operator who must face her own fears in order to save a teenage girl from a serial killer.”
Rich D’Ovidio (Exit Wounds) wrote the script, which initially had Halle Berry attached before she dropped out due to personal scheduling issues, though several top actresses have expressed interest in the part.
Said Anderson: “This script has two elements I always look for in a thriller — strong, believable female characters and a smart, very dark and very creepy story that will definitely resonate with large audiences.”
Production is skedded for late spring.
