Safran, Gold Circle bank on ‘ATM’

Action film comes from 'Buried' writer Sparling

The Safran Co. and Gold Circle Films are going to the bank with actioner “ATM,” picking up the spec script from “Buried” writer Chris Sparling and hiring David Brooks to direct.

Peter Safran, who also produced “Buried,” will produce the project along with Paul Brooks (“A Haunting in Connecticut”).

Project centers on three co-workers who — on a routine stop at an ATM — unexpectedly end up in a desperate fight for their lives.

David Brooks, who has gained notice for his short “Gone,” will make his feature directorial debut. “ATM” will be shot in the fall.

“Buried,” starring Ryan Reynolds, was the first major sale at Sundance with Lionsgate snapping up domestic distribution rights for $3.2 million.

Scott Neimeyer, Norm Waitt and Dan Clifton are exec producing “ATM.”

Safran is also producing actioner “Elephant White,” starring Djimon Hounsou, and action-comedy “Flypaper,” starring Patrick Dempsey. Paul Brooks is a producer on Warner Bros.’ “Life as We Know It,” starring Katherine Heigl and Josh Duhamel.

Sparling is represented by UTA and Kaplan/Perrone. David Brooks is repped by Principato-Young.
