Hyped “Pray for Light” Spec a Contained Horror Likened to ‘Panic Room’ and ’30 Days of Night’

This tracking board is hyping a spec script that just hit the town that is heading “into every major buyer with powerful names behind it.”

The spec, written by 2017 Blood List writer Marc Bloom and entitled Pray for Light, is keeping its core plot points under wraps for the time being, but is being pitched as “a contained horror in the vein of Panic Room and 30 Days of Night.”

As of last night, they were reporting that the script is going to: Amblin, Sony, Paramount, Fox, Lionsgate, Netflix, Warner Bros., Global Road, Annapurna, Screen Gems, Universal, New Regency, A24, New Line, Paramount Players, MGM, Focus, Media Rights Capital, and eOne.

Taking the project into these homes are Captivate Entertainment, Vertigo Entertainment, LuckyChap, Intrepid Pictures, Mad Chance, Unique Features, and Arcade Films.

The site adds that the hype is connected to a very well crafted franchise-starting element built into the story that would allow both a star-driven, or world-driven series to carry on beyond the original.
