Ingelsby and WB to Adapt Sacred Prey


Screenwriter Brad Ingelsby and Warner Bros. Pictures will develop a feature based on “Sacred Prey,” Vivian Schilling’s novel about a hitman who becomes the victim of his own takedown, says The Hollywood Reporter.

The high-concept thriller centers on a loan shark who kills a man he believes duped him, only to wake up and find himself in the body of that man three days before the murder. He then must undertake a furious effort to prevent the murder he committed.

Although tentatively dubbed Sacred Prey, the project might yet get a new title, with “Hit Man” among those names being considered.
