Platinum Dunes has made a mid-six-figure deal with Focus Features for an untitled thriller pitch by scribes Jason Rothenberg and Bill Robinson. Michael Bay, Brad Fuller and Andrew Form will produce.
“It’s a thriller in the vein of ‘The Hand That Rocks the Cradle,’ ” Bay said.
Project marks the first Focus deal for the Platinum Dunes trio, who after mounting the profitable remake of “Texas Chainsaw Massacre” made a lucrative overall deal at Dimension Films.
The scribes most recently scripted “Lifeline,” a New Line pic they sold under the title “Semester at Sea.” Rothenberg also wrote “69th Story Crisis” for Paramount and “The Sparrow” for Universal.
