A remake of Eric Valette's 2011 thriller La Proie is in development at DreamWorks and The Hollywood Reporter is saying that James Croker has been brought on board to pen the script.
The U.S. adaptation, The Prey, is being produced by Charles S. Cohen.
Croker penned The Woman in Black: Angel of Death for Hammer.
The film concerns a crook whose cellmate is a suspected rapist/child molestor. This cellmate is found innocent and set free, however, and he promises to take care of the crook's family. What the crook discovers, though, is that this man is a serial killer and now the crook's family is in danger. Naturally, the crook does his best to get out of jail to save his loved ones from this maniac.
