UK director Simon Hunter, whose debut film Lighthouse opens in London this week as an unusual double bill with horror classic Evil Dead, has teamed with producer Sara Harper on his next project, heist movie Prey.

Prey, which Hunter also wrote, follows a group of criminals who kidnap a murderer by mistake. Harper, formerly a production and acquisitions executive at the Film Council's Premiere Fund, is producing through her company Babydoll Productions, which has an umbrella arrangement with Chiara Menage and Cat Villiers' production company, Autonomous.

Lighthouse, a low-budget UK horror, is released though the Feature Film Company.
