Variety says the producers include Stephen L’Heureux of Solopsist, Chris Bender, JC Spink, Neal Flaherty, Chris Billig and Nathan Miller.
Curve, written by Kimberly Johnson, centers on a young woman’s struggle to survive when she finds herself at the mercy of a psychopathic killer after taking a detour into the backwoods outside New York City. Eva Mendes was formerly attached to star.
Miller said Hunter will work on the script with the aim of going into production in six months.
