Oren Peli-Produced Series River Faces Changes


Project to air on ABC

Michael Green has overhauled The River, the Oren (Paranormal Activity) Peli-penned pilot for ABC. Green’s credits include Heroes and Kings.

The project was first announced last September. Since then, ABC rejected Peli’s draft of the script and brought in Green for, as Deadline says, a “page 1 rewrite.”

With a script good to go, shooting begins soon.

Utilizing “found footage,” the proposed series follows a family going down the Amazon river in search of their father. Creepiness ensues and, as I joked earlier, hopefully a cannibal menace will be introduced.
