Envision Media Arts has secured the rights to Keith Ray Putnam’s action-horror spec script Red Ice, TheWrap reports.
“Red Ice follows a trucker hauling emergency supplies across the frozen waterways of arctic Canada who must survive an onslaught of mysterious, man-eating creatures.”
A graduate of the USC School of Cinematic Arts, Putman has worked as writer and director on independent films, industrials and web commercials. His award-winning short, “double,” began its festival run at Cannes and finished at the Newport Beach Film Festival. “Red Ice” is his first spec to be picked up by a studio-based production company.
Putman also recently completed Malicious, a haunted house movie for the digital age that is in development at Sycamore Pictures.
