Well, that didn’t take very long. Just a few days ago we brought you a promo trailer for a fantastic looking idea called Grim Night from the man behind The Strangers, Bryan Bertino. Given the quality of said trailer, we knew someone would be snapping it up ASAP.
According to Deadline Universal Pictures just won an auction for Grim Night, a thriller about a night that happens once a year globally, where people lock themselves at home and fend off the senseless and random attacks by Grim Reapers.
Unbroken Films partners Bryan Bertino and Adrienne Biddle are partnering with Marc Platt to produce. The script was written by Brandon Bestenheider and Allen Bey, who made their first sale. The duo helped move things along by making a teaser trailer for the spec that was leaked by their Verve reps before the auction began.
About six other outlets were interested, but Universal moved fastest. Check out the teaser below.
