Brad Anderson knows ‘Jack’

Bold Films taps director for killer tale

Brad Anderson (“Transiberian”) is to direct Bold Films’ thriller “Jack,” about a serial killer with amnesia.

Affinity Intl., the joint sales division of Bold Films’ and OddLot Entertainment, is handling international sales at Cannes.

Anderson will direct from a script by David Venable.

Bold Films’ Michel Litvak and David Lancaster will produce with Alexandra Milchan and Marc Sternberg. Exec producer is Bold’s Gary Michael Walters. Lensing is set to begin Aug. 30.

Storyline revolves around what happens when the amnesiac falls in love with a doctor. As the killer’s memories begin to surface, he must decide whether to make a clean start or embrace the killer within.

” ‘Jack’ is an incredibly commercial thriller, laced with tension and suspense, so it’s important to have the right director to bring those aspects to life. Brad Anderson has a unique psychological intensity that will make for a memorable theatrical experience,” Affinity’s Brian O’Shea said.
