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.
