Hitting theaters sometime in 2013 will be Thirteen, a new horror film from Universal, Strike Entertainment and Energy Entertainment.
Ostensibly it’s supposed to be in the Flatliners mold, but I’m not sure how a found-footage possession film can really compare. We’ll see soon enough though!
Per Variety, “Universal has pre-emptively bought ‘Thirteen,’ a spec by Benjamin Magid, and set it up with Uni-based Strike Entetrainment and Brooklyn Weaver at Energy Entertainment.
‘Thirteen’ centers on possession and is understood to utilize a mixture of found-footage point of views. The story is reminiscent of 1990’s ‘Flatliners’, which starred Julia Roberts and Kiefer Sutherland as medical school students experimenting with the line between life and death.
Magid penned ‘Pan’, a supernatural take on J.M. Barrie’s ‘Peter Pan’, which is scheduled to go into production later this year with Chris Tuffin, Renee Tab and Weaver producing and Ben Hibon directing.”
It doesn’t sound immediately off the wall interesting, but I suppose there’s always room to be pleasantly surprised.
