Halloween Producers Lay Down the Hurt
This moring, Daily Variety reports that Trancas International Films, the production house behind almost all the Halloween films including the recent remake, have chosen newbie director Adam Finberg to helm Hurt, from a script by Anthony Grieco (no relation to Richard) and Jeff Drongowski, marking the duo's first script sale.
First-time writers working with first-time directors; if only it could go this well for anyone out there with aspirations to direct some day ... Hurt revolves around a group of friends who gather for a funeral for one of their own, which quickly turns into a bloodbath because it was setup as retribution.
Halloween producer Malek Akkad, son of the late Moustapha, will help produce Hurt, marking one of the first times in a while Trancas has produced anything but a Halloween film.
