John and Drew Dowdle (Quarantine, upcoming Devil) are attached to direct an adaptation of Jack Kilborn’s novel “Afraid.” The book, about five killer members of a classified Special Forces unit, is described as follows:
A helicopter has crashed near Safe Haven and unleashed something horrifying. Now this merciless force is about to do what it does best. Isolate. Terrorize. Annihilate. As residents begin dying in a storm of gory violence, Safe Haven’s only chance for survival will rest with an aging county sheriff, a firefighter, and a single mom.
Larry Malkin and Chad Thumann are writing the script.
