Dan Berk & Robert Olsen Set Untitled Horror Thriller at Amblin
The Hollywood Reporter brings word that Villains filmmakers Dan Berk and Robert Olsen will write and direct an untitled horror project for Amblin Partners. Joby Harold and Tory Tunnell, who currently have a first-look deal with Amblin through their Safehouse Pictures banner, will produce.
The secret project is being described as a “social horror” Safehouse’s Matt Schwartz will executive produce while Amblin’s president of production Jeb Brody and creative exec John Budwerwitz will oversee the project for the company.
Berk and Olsen’s Villains starred Bill Skarsgård and Maika Monroe as lovebirds on the lam who come across an isolated house, only to find a young girl chained in the basement. Things go downhill when the girl’s parents, played by Jeffrey Donovan and Krya Sedwick, come home.
Harold previously worked on John Wick: Chapter 3 – Parabellum and is currently the showrunner on Lucasfilm’s Obi-Wan Kenobi Star Wars series at Disney+. Tunnell served as a producer for King Arthur: Legend of the Sword, which was written by Harold. The pair recently set an untitled show choir project at Amblin, based on the inspiring true story of school teacher Lynette Carr-Hicks and her award-winning show choir Rhythm of the Knight.
