Director David Slade to Become a Villain
Director David Slade has given us a lot of good cinema thus far. He's brought us the riveting revenge flick Hard Candy as well as 30 Days of Night and even managed to make the most watchable flick in the Twilight Saga. That couldn't have been an easy task. So, what's next?
According to Deadline, Wayfare Entertainment has set Slade to direct Villain, a psychological thriller scripted by Josh Zetumer, who wrote the RoboCop remake that Jose Padilha is directing at MGM with Joel Kinnaman. Wayfare is producing and financing the film, with shooting scheduled to take place in Alaska.
The thriller follows two brothers as they confront their dark past in an unforgiving wilderness. Casting is under way for the brothers. Wayfare Entertainment’s Ben Browning, Sarah Shepard and Jeremy Kipp Walker will produce. Wayfare’s Michael Maher will executive produce with Zetumer. Said Browning: “David is a brilliant director with an eye for gritty, dark thrillers. He’s the perfect match for Josh’s phenomenal script, and we are confident that we will draw top-tier talent to the project in the coming weeks.”
