The good folks who brought us Donkey Punch and Kill List, Warp Films, have lots more subversive slivers of scares in store for us in the coming months, and we’ve got the 411 on each of them for you! Dig it!
According to Screen Daily Warp Films has made several acquisitions at Cannes including the rights to Rachel Ward’s Numbers, a supernatural thriller “about a young woman who sees the dates of strangers’ deaths.” Paul Fraser will adapt.
Warp is working with creative team Shynola, who will make the sci-fi thriller Redmen, adapted from the novel The Red Men by Matthew de Abaitua. Polly Stokes and Mary Burke will also produce the debut feature of BAFTA short winner Paul Wright. “‘The Red Men’ is at heart a novel about a character wrestling with his conscience, set against a pervasive and Orwellian vision of contemporary society: surveillance, automation, biotechnology, and their implications for our humanity.”
Lastly, Laura Hastings-Smith (who worked with Warp’s Robin Gutch on Steve McQueen’s Hunger) is pulling together the final financing for psychological horror This Little Piggy. “The thriller is about a young woman whose weekend camping with her new boyfriend and his daughter becomes a fight for survival. When her boyfriend goes missing, she and the child investigate the nearby farm and find themselves trapped like animals facing a terrifying death.”
Look for more on these soon!
