Some quick news has come in this pre-Comic-Con weekend announcing a preemptive deal with progress-to-production elements by Russell Ackerman and John Schoenfelder’s new company, Addictive Pictures. According to The Wrap they’ve optioned Matthew Kennedy’s feature spec A Man Called Death.
Ackerman and Schoenfelder are former executives who previously worked with Guillermo del Toro and Scott Rudin, respectively. They have a first-look deal with Bloom, which is led by billionaire film financier Ken Kao.
The script features a Misery-esque setup that evolves into a Usual Suspects-type non-linear storyline. Kennedy will produce with his manager, Brooklyn Weaver, who brings his own experience and relationships to the table. Energy Entertainment’s creative executive David Binns will co-produce.
Look for more on this one soon… if it’s miserable enough for us to follow up on, that is!
