Ed Gass-Donnelly will write and direct the sci-fi thriller Pivot. Lotus Entertainment will handle international sales.
Pivot centres on a scientist, who invents a device to access parallel universe after his wife is killed.
Lotus’ Jim Seibel and Bill Johnson will produce with DJ Gugenheim and Ara Keshishian of Lotus on board as executive producers alongside Gass-Donnelly, who directed The Last Exorcism Part II (pictured).
ICM Partners and Jennifer Levine at Untitled represent Donnelly and brokered the deal.
Gugenheim will oversee the project for Lotus Entertainment, whose slate include the imminent Toronto world premiere Maggie starring Arnold Schwarzenegger and Abigail Breslin.
