Sierra / Affinity sets April start in Romania for Wer
The company has revealed the title of its new EFM-bound horror project from the producers behind shock US chart-topper The Devil Inside.
Nick Meyer will introduce Wer to international buyers in Berlin next week. Plot details are being kept under wraps on the project, although it is understood the filmmakers will focus on a different horror genre. Production is scheduled to commence on Apr 9.
As they did on The Devil Inside (pictured), William Brent Bell will direct from a screenplay he co-wrote with Matthew Peterman.
Sierra / Affinity and its fund partner Incentive Filmed Entertainment are financing and will produce with Steven Schneider, Peterman and Morris Paulson. Bell, Peterman and Paulson will run the film through their production company Prototype.
Meyer’s sales slate includes Parker, directed by Taylor Hackford and starring Jason Statham and Jennifer Lopez. FilmDistrict will distribute the thriller in the US.
