Commercials helmer John Benito will make his directorial debut on action thriller “Silver Strike” for Fox 2000.
Written by Jay Barton Mitchell, “Silver Strike” follows a military unit that goes down in Eastern Europe and discovers its enemies aren’t local militants but werewolves.
Trevor Albert and Mark Gordon will produce the pic. They were executive producers on Fox’s upcoming “The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen.”
Fox 2000 VP production Jack Leslie supervises “Silver Strike” with creative exec Maria Faillace, who brought the ICM-repped Benito onto the project.
