David R. Ellis (upcoming Final Destination 4) will direct Six Days Till Midnight, a Mark Bacci-scripted thriller set for an April start, reports Variety.
The film is about a wealthy businessman who encounters a stranger who says he has six days to answer one question. For each day he doesn’t get the answer, a loved one will be killed, ending with the businessman’s death at the end of the sixth day.
The $25 million project is being financed by Oceana Media and produced through Emmett/Furla Films. Randall Emmett, Arianne Fraser, Ksana Golod and George Parra are producing.
“I’ve been doing high-concept B movies, and this is the best script I’ve been associated with, a thriller with a great twist,” Ellis told the trade.
