Lena Headey (300, “Game Of Thrones”, “The Sarah Connor Chronicles”) will join previously announced lead Ethan Hawke in Universal/Platinum Dunes’ Vigilandia.
It’ll be interesting to see how Fuller and Form handle smaller budgets and original material. I wasn’t always a fan of their remake stuff (hated Nightmare On Elm Street but absolutely loved Friday The 13th) but they kind of make for interesting old-school producers in the sense that they really actively call the shots on their sets.
Per Variety, ““Game of Thrones” star Lena Headey as landed the female lead in Universal’s “Vigilandia,” starring Ethan Hawke. James DeMonaco will direct from a script he penned. Plot details of the sci-fi thriller are being kept under wraps.
Jason Blum, Michael Bay, Brad Fuller and Andrew Form will produce through Blumhouse and Platinum Dunes along with Why Not Prods. Sebastien Lemercier exec produces. Universal recently came on producer of the pic, the first film under its first-look deal with Blumhouse. While Platinum Dunes has been known for making films at a price, the pic reps its first foray into really low-budgeted fare. Sources say the budget would be similar to that of FilmDistrict’s “Insidious” or the upcoming “Sinister.” READ MORE
