Another survival based horror flick will be coming out of the UK that’s bound to keep us all holding on tight. Read on for the first word on Blood Mountain.
According to Deadline, London-based Derby Street Films has made a six-figure acquisition of the Jonathan Stokes spec Blood Mountain, a script that made the 2011 Black List.
The script is described as a gritty survival thriller with action elements. Shaun Redick and Ray Mansfield of Movie Package Co. are producing alongside James Gibb of Cutting Edge, with Nicola Horlick, Rachel Durkin, Brooklyn Weaver and Jonathan Stokes serving as executive producers.
Derby Street Films, which is run by Horlick, was established to take advantage of the Enterprise Investment Scheme in the UK, developing projects for eventual sale to the studios and independent financiers, TV networks and cable channels. Derby Street Films acquires underlying intellectual properties and is developing original ideas with commercial potential. The goal is to develop 25 projects over the next three years. Derby Street intends to quickly secure a director for Blood Mountain.
