FilmDistrict (Insidious) has taken an equity stake in WER, a horror film that is directed by The Devil Inside helmer William Brent Bell that is expected to be one of the hot titles at Berlin later this week, says Deadline.
Bell wrote the script with Matthew Peterman, with whom he scripted The Devil Inside, a sleeper low budget horror film which has grossed $53 million domestic for Paramount.
As we continue to be the only site to exclusively break the plot, the found footage pic takes place in police station with the suspect turning into a werewolf.
Shooting begins April 9. FilmDistrict could end up as the film’s domestic distributor.
WER will bring a filmmaking style similar to The Devil Inside, but apply it to a different horror mythology they are keeping under wraps. Steven Schneider, Matthew Peterman and Morris Paulson will produce. Bell, Peterman and Paulson partner in the production company Prototype.
