Some old news that has recently been picked up is that the Indomina Group has acquired North American rights to Bart Layton’s The Imposter, says THR. The documentary had its world premiere at the Sundance Film Festival in January and will receive a theatrical release later this year. “The suspenseful story of ‘The Imposter’ involves the disappearance of a 13-year-old Texas boy in 1994 who miraculously surfaces in Spain years later in the form of a man who may or may be the same person.”
We’ve also landed the official plot crunch for The Wright Girls, the American remake to the Japanese classic 2LDK, which will star Gemma Arterton as one of the two female protags. “Vanessa and Katie are best friends and roommates who are living the Hollywood dream by starring together on a hit television show. Ambitious and eager to advance their careers, the two both set their sights on the same choice movie role. A wicked game of sabotage begins, which soon escalates into a visceral, bloody catfight filled with violence, mutilation… and nearly murder.”
David Ellison’s Skydance Productions has set Laeta Kalogridis (Shutter Island,Alexander) and Patrick Lussier to script an original science fiction adventure based on an idea hatched at Skydance, reports Deadline. Unfortunately, they are keeping the idea close to the vest. Lussier’s script credits include Wes Craven’s Dracula trilogies, My Bloody Valentine 3D and Drive Angry 3D. He is separately co-writing an untitled thriller for producer Jason Blum that Lussier will direct.
Lastly, Twitch has shared the first ever trailer for Eron Sheean’s indie thriller, Errors Of The Human Body, which stars Michael Eklund, Karoline Herfurth, Tomas Lemarquis and Rik Mayall. In the film, “Canadian scientist Dr Geoff Burton takes up a position at a new institute in wintry Dresden, Germany. His contribution to their most important project – a human regeneration gene-has the potential to make something miraculous out of a personal tragedy that has haunted him for years. Errors of the Human Body is about one man’s quest for redemption from his own disturbing past, set within the mysterious world of genetic engineering.”
