Barbarian backing ‘Urge’

Film fund to finance thriller

Barbarian Film Fund will finance the psychological thriller “Urge,” written by Guy Busick.

Story takes place in a quaint rural town, where the population is suddenly reduced to its most base violent and sexual urges after being exposed to a failed secret government experiment. A small group of locals are left unexposed and struggle to survive and uncover the truth behind the incident.

Project will be produced by Darby Parker via his Williamsburg Media Cult production banner. Michael Curry also will produce alongside Barbarian’s Aaron Kaufman, Ron Hartenbaum and Douglas Kuber. Benderspink’s Chris Bender, JC Spink and Jake Weiner exec produce along with Michael LaFetra and Bryan Brucks.

A director has not yet been named.

Barbarian is financing the Ashton Kutcher starrer “Spread,” which starts shooting in the coming weeks.
