Fox Searchlight has picked up Zak Olkewicz‘s Elimination, a horror pitch to be produced by Shawn Levy through his 21 Laps banner, Deadline reports.
This pitch is described as a high concept horror film involving a cerebral game of cat and mouse. They are keeping the logline under wraps as high concepts are easy to rip off.
The good news is that Fox Searchlight is awesome. Seriously, look at their epic track record – Stoker, The East, Black Swan, Martha Marcy May Marlene, Sound of My Voice, Another Earth etc. I would die to have them doing more than one thriller per year. DIE.
This marks the second studio sale this year for Olkewicz, who made a Dimension deal last spring on Ink And Bone, a script which topped the 2013 Blood List which ranks genre scripts.
