Thriller to be directed by Daniel Alfredson and is headed to the AFM.
Dean Devlin’s Electric Entertainment has injected some vitality into a torpid pre-AFM stretch on the US side, announcing it will co-finance and has taken all worldwide rights to Go With Me starring Anthony Hopkins.
Kidnapping Freddy Heineken director Daniel Alfredson reunites with Hopkins on the story of a young woman who enlists the help of a former logger and his sidekick to confront a local crime lord.
Alfredson also directed The Girl Who Played With Fire and The Girl Who Kicked The Hornet’s Nest. Joe Gangemi and Gregory Jacobs adapted the book by Castle Freeman Jr.
Electric is co-financing with Enderby Entertainment. Rick Dugdale of Enderby produces alongside Lindsay Williams and Ellen Goldsmith-Vein of The Gotham Group, Jacobs and Hopkins.
International sales executive Nolan Pielak, who heads up Electric’s British Columbia offices, brought in the project.
Production is set to commence in British Columbia in mid-November and additional casting is currently underway.
“Since we launched the Vancouver office, our mandate has been to tap into local productions with strong Canadian production partners,” said Pielak. “When Rick told us he was doing Go With Me essentially in our backyard, it was a natural fit.”
Electric’s AFM slate includes SXSW selection Before I Disappear from Shawn Christensen.
