Paramount Insurge has made plans to develop a low-budget sci-fi tale called Equinox, says a story at The Hollywood Reporter. Simon Boyes and Adam Mason, the pair behind the upcoming Not Safe For Work, will provide the screenplay.
The plot of Equinox has not been officially revealed, but the trade likens the story to a outer space version of Phillip Noye’s 1989 thriller Dead Calm. That film, based on a 1963 novel by Charles Williams, followed a married couple who, traveling on a boat, pick up a shipwrecked man at sea who turns out to be a vicious killer.
Bryan Brucks and Stefan Sonnenfeld will prodice with Sarah Perlman Bremner executive producing.
