Bold, Orphanage form a ‘Legion’

Stewart to direct supernatural thriller

Bold Films is pairing with visual effects house the Orphanage to produce “Legion,” a supernatural thriller that marks the directorial debut of Scott Stewart. Shooting begins in the fall.

Stewart is the co-founder of the Orphanage, whose recent visual effects resume includes “Live Free and Die Hard,” “Pirates of the Caribbean: At World’s End,” “Superman Returns” and “Sin City.” Bold Films will finance the film, with Michel Litvak and David Lancaster producing and Gary Michael Walters exec producing.

Story follows a group of strangers stranded in a desert truckstop who must band together to stop an army of demonic creatures out to fulfill an ancient prophecy that opens the gates of hell.

“Scott’s vast cutting-edge experience will give the film a highly stylized visual quality,” said Bold’s Litvak.

Velvet Octopus is selling foreign at Cannes.
