Cinema Management Group launched sales at Cannes on the upcoming horror thriller P5ych from Saw franchise producer Peter Block.
Block and fellow producer Maxwell Sinovi are out to Paul Bettany (Priest) and Paul Giamatti (John Dies at the End) on the story of five trauma survivors at a research clinic.
“P5ych centres on the postmodern conceit of five patients undergoing experimental treatment whose real-life experiences inspired horror staples such as Friday The 13th, Halloween, Texas Chainsaw Massacre and A Nightmare On Elm Street.
When the former victims are made to confront their fears the memories become real and the body count begins to rise.”
Matthew Currie Holmes, who appeared in The Fog and Firewall, will direct.
