While we’re still unsure if it’s going to be a horror project, it is coming from Hammer Films. It was announced today that Hammer picked up Wake, a spec script by Chris Borrelli, with Kasper Barfoed attached to direct. The project has franchise aspirations and has been a described as a Transporter-style story. Borrelli is a “Black List” writer who first popped up with the supernatural thriller spec Whisper, produced by Universal/Gold Circle in 2007. Last summer his spec The Vatican Tapes sold in a bidding war to Lionsgate and Lakeshore. Barfoed is a Danish filmmaker best known for 2008’s Kandidaten (The Candidate), which is getting remade as a Sam Worthington vehicle.
