The Dowdle Bros. Will Get You Afraid


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.
