CBS Films announced today that Babak Najafi (Snabba Cash 2 aka Easy Money 2) is attached to direct the action thriller Inside the Machine.
Written by Marc Maurino and produced by Beau Flynn and Tripp Vinson of Contrafilms, Inside the Machine follows an El Paso-based undercover ATF agent who risks his life to destroy a murder-for-hire gang that is run from within a prison by an untouchable criminal mastermind.
“Babak Najafi is an incredibly talented filmmaker who is going to blow audiences away with his ability to deliver an adrenaline-fueled thriller,” commented Vinson. “We could not be more excited to help him realize his vision for ‘Inside the Machine.'”
Najafiu will work closely with Maurino on developing the script. Najafi made his directorial debut with Sebbe, a film that won the prestigious Best Debut Film award at the Berlin International Film Festival in 2010. He is also attached to direct Unlocked at Endgame.
