Director Matt Westrup is getting ready to make The Gate, a feature version of his short of the same name. Wayfare Entertainment will be financing and helping him develop the idea and now they’ve found a screenwriter who can tease it out to feature length, Mitchell Akselrad
Per Variety “Wayfare Entertainment has tapped Mitchell Akselgard to pen the adaptation of the short ‘The Gate.’
Wayfare is financing and producing. Matt Westrup, who helmed the original short, is set to direct. Akselrad most recently penned ‘Agent,’ which New Regency picked up.”
You can check out the short right here. It’s pretty cool and the comparisons to Alive In Joburg (which begat District 9) seem apt.
