Crime Scene starts thriller ‘Everly’

Pic expected to begin production in winter

EXCLUSIVE: Crime Scene Pictures partners Adam Ripp and Rob Paris are set to produce helmer Joe Lynch’s action thriller, “Everly.”

It’s the year-old shingle’s second project after Colin Firth and Cameron Diaz starrer “Gambit,” which is lensing in London.

“Everly” centers on a down-on-her-luck woman, stuck in her apartment, who must fend off waves of assassins sent by her ex, a dangerous mob boss.

Pic is set entirely in one room and based on a concept created by Lynch. Crime Scene is talking to female leads and expects to begin lensing in New Orleans in winter. Yale Hannon pens the script, which was on the Hollywood Black List.

Anonymous Content’s Luke Rivett is producing alongside Ripp and Paris, who are also financing the pic. Rizal Risjad and Philip Elway exec produce.

It’s been a successful year for Crime Scene Pictures so far. Helmer Michael Hoffman’s “Gambit” sold like hotcakes in Berlin earlier this year, where it was snapped up by Alliance Films for Canada, Blighty and Spain.

Joel and Ethan Coen penned the script for the comedy, which struggled to get into production for more than a decade before Crime Scene stepped in.

The shingle is backed by private equity, and aims to finance and produce two to three films per year with budgets ranging from $2 million to $25 million.

Crime Scene also has a television arm focused on reality programming.
