Paramount Pictures is set to reteam with Michael Bay’s Platinum Dunes and writers Jason Pagan and Andrew Stark on the high-concept hand-held camera thriller Raindrop, reports THR.
The studio, which recently wrapped production on Pagan and Stark’s $13 million thriller Almanac, nabbed the Raindrop pitch pre-emptively.
The project is described as a sci-fi thriller with a teenage protagonist that will employ innovative hand-held camera work in a similar vein as the Dean Israelite-helmed Almanac, which also was produced by Platinum Dunes and will be released by Paramount on Feb. 28.
Plot details on Raindrop are being kept under wraps, but insiders say it is being envisioned with a slightly higher budget than that of Almanac.
Bay is producing Raindrop via his first-look deal with the studio.
Pagan and Stark made a splash with their first and only other screenplay, Almanac, which follows in a string of low-budget hand-held films including the Paranormal Activity franchise that has become a hallmark of Paramount president Adam Goodman’s tenure.
