Intrepid Pictures has acquired supernatural thriller “The Fourth Horseman,” penned by Marshall Uzzle and Perry Fair, and set it up with Intrepid partners Marc D. Evans and Trevor Macy along with Mike Karz.
The banner has brought in the writing team of F. Paul Benz and Steve Tomlin (“Snow Blind”) to rewrite.
“Horseman” centers on a young priest’s battle to thwart the rise of the fourth horseman of the apocalypse, when three of the horsemen — War, Pestilence and Famine — await the birth of their fourth brother so they can fulfill their destiny and bring about the end of times.
Intrepid’s Katherine Brown brought the project in to the company, which is producing and co-financing three to five pictures per year with Rogue, Universal and other distributors in the teen comedy, horror, thriller and action genres.
Intrepid’s upcoming releases include “Balls of Fury,” opening Wednesday, and “The Strangers,” to be released by Rogue in early 2008. The company is also producing “Doomsday” with Crystal Sky and “Couriers” with Jason Netter of Kickstart Comic Art Studios and exec producer Ken Levin.
