Summit Hopes to Fill ‘Arena’ Seats

Alright, I know this isn’t horror, but depending on how it’s directed, it could be over-loaded with gore. Sounding like a mix between two classics, Running Man and The Warriors, Jeff Wadlow has come on to direct Arena, a sci-fi action film that he began developing with Summit a few months ago. The pic revolves around a group of modern-day soldiers transported to a shifting landscape, where they are forced to face off against the best warriors from different eras in gladitorial battle. Frosh scribes Toby Wagstaff and Darren Howell wrote the screenplay, which Summit optioned in April 2008.
