Lionsgate Boards Dowdle Bros.’ Coup


From the directors of Devil

The Dowdle Bros. have been nurturing a project called The Coup for over two years now.

When we spoke to John and Drew in the summer of 2008, they told us all about it. “It’s a husband, wife and two little girls – ages 5 and 7 – who go to Cambodia,” John told us. “A coup overthrows the government and starts executing all of the foreigners.” (Click on the link for more.)

Today, B-D is reporting that Lionsgate is going to produce the project and that pre-production is underway.

The Dowdles last directed Devil.
