‘Halloween’ team ready to get ‘Hurt’

Adam Finberg to direct horror film

Producers of the recent “Halloween” redo have picked up the horror thriller spec “Hurt” from scribes Anthony Grieco and Jeff Drongowski for tyro helmer Adam Finberg to direct.

Fittingly, Trancas Intl. Films, Left Hook Entertainment and Yellowsand Pictures optioned the script on Halloween, making it one of the final sales before writers hit the picket lines.

Project revolves around a group of estranged best friends who are reunited after another commits suicide. Gathering ends up becoming a bloodbath because meeting was set up as retribution.

Trancas’ Malek Akkad, Left Hook’s Justin Hogan and Yellowsand’s Marc Lazard will produce the pic.

Trancas produced Rob Zombie’s remake of “Halloween,” which scared up $71 million worldwide for Dimension Films and helped reignite interest in the ongoing franchise.

“Hurt” is the first script sale for Grieco and Drongowski. It’s also set to become the first feature for Finberg, a graduate of the American Film Institute’s directing program.

Grieco and Drongowski are repped by Industry and Fuse Entertainment. Finberg is repped by Unlimited Management.
