Paramount has decided to go on a Family Vacation, buying Eric Reese‘s thriller spec script and setting it up with Daniel Dubiecki’s Allegiance Theater to produce through the Paramount Insurge label.
Unfortunately, the logline is under wraps other than the story centering on a family going on vacation. The fact that it’s described as a thriller and not horror makes me think it’s going to be more of a survival story, although that’s me just speculating.
Dubiecki is teamed with IM Global to produce indie drama “Money Monster” with Jodie Foster coming on board in October to direct. Dubiecki received a best picture Oscar nomination for Up in the Air.
Reese’s spec The Faces has been set up at FilmNation with Grace‘s Paul Solet attached to direct the horror thriller. That story centers on newlyweds who, a year after narrowly escaping a brutal kidnapping, find themselves plagued by a horrifying series of events.
