Scatter Light Production has picked up Curve, a thriller from Kimberly Lofstrom Johnson.
The story centers on a woman who offers a ride to a good Samaritan after he helps her fix her car. When the man tries to attack her, she attempts an emergency maneuver that lands her trapped in her car in a ravine, with the man waiting for her to weaken.
The company’s Chris Billig and Nathan Miller are producing, as is Neal Flaherty via his newly created Royal Prospect shingle. Chris Bender and J.C. Spink of Benderspink also are producing.
Flaherty, a one-time employee of Benderspink, found the script when its option at Original Films lapsed. He brought it to his mentors, who then set it up with Scatter Light, a new production and financing entity that aims to make movies in the $5 million-$10 million range. Curve will be the company’s first project.
