McG Chases Storms for Syfy
The Syfy channel and director McG. For whatever reason those things sound so right together. Like they were meant to be. And now finally they are almost together.
According to Variety, Syfy Films is developing Day 38 and is in early talks with McG and Mary Viola to produce and Richard Farmer to direct the found-footage thriller.
The project, scripted by Chris Rossi and Gabe Scott, was developed in-house at McG's Wonderland Sound and Vision with Farmer -- a noted commercial director whose latest campaigns include Sims, Activision, and Nintendo.
The story is told from the point of view of a group of stormchasers who face a Category 5 tornado and find themselves fighting off a force even greater than Mother Nature.
Year-old SyFy Films, created as a venture between Universal and SyFy Ventures, made its first deal in October when it bought feature rights to George R.R. Martin's superhero anthology Wild Cards and tapped Melinda Snodgrass to pen the screenplay.
