A few months back Warner Bros. Pictures purchased the spec script Hidden from twin brothers and recent college graduates Matt and Ross Duffer, and now they’re attaching some big name talent. Namely Alexander Skarsgard (“True Blood”, Straw Dogs 2011) – though there’s not yet any word in regard to who he’ll be playing.
Per Variety, ““True Blood” star Alexander Skarsgard is set to topline Warner Bros.’ ‘Hidden’, which twin brothers Matt and Ross Duffer will direct from their own spec script. WB acquired the Duffers’ spec late last year in a competitive situation. Deal contained progress-to-production language, indicating that studio was anxious to start filming, rather than allow the project to languish in development.”
That last sentence means we’ll probably be seeing this movie sooner rather than later. Hidden is “an elevated horror-thriller about a family hiding in a bomb shelter after escaping a mysterious outbreak.” Roy Lee (7500, The Ring, Pacific Rim, Godzilla), Mason Novick and Lawrence Grey will produce, while John Middleton and Sebastian Aloi will exec produce.
