Voltage Pictures and Prime Universe Films have made a pre-emptive acquisition of an untitled supernatural/horror spec by “Ash vs Evil Dead” writer Brian Edward Hill that is likened to Se7en, with a female protagonist, says Deadline.
Voltage will finance the film, with Nicolas Chartier and Ara Keshishian set to produce with Prime Universe’s Adrian Askarieh. Giulio Marantonio also is on board to produce. Hill will be exec producer.
They’re moving quickly as Voltage and Prime Universe will be going out to directors imminently and are aiming to cast the lead with a significant name.
Hill has written such comics titles as Romulus, Postal, Netherworld and 7 Days In Hell for Image/Top Cow Comics.
