‘Evidence’ leads to helmer

Olatunde Osunsanmi to direct thriller

Olatunde Osunsanmi (“The Fourth Kind”) has signed to direct the thriller “Evidence” with Marc Platt Prods., Bold Films and Film Engine producing.

Principal photography for “Evidence,” penned by John Swetnam, is slated to start in July. Sierra/Affinity will handle international sales.

The team behind the upcoming “Drive” is reuniting to produce “Evidence,” including Marc Platt who will produce through his eponymous shingle along with David Lancaster and Michel Litvak via the Bold Films banner, and Anthony Rhulen through FilmEngine. Platt’s Adam Siegel, Bold’s Gary Michael Walters, and FilmEngine’s Jake Wagner will exec produce and Bold’s Garrick Dion will co-produce.

Story’s set with police arriving at an abandoned gas station following a brutal massacre — with the only evidence at the crime scene the victims’ personal electronic devices, including a camcorder, flipcam, and two cell phones. With nothing else to go on, a detective must analyze the bits of found footage to piece together the identity of the killer.

Nik Mavinkurve, who brought the script in, will help oversee the project for Platt.

Osunsanmi is represented by CAA and managed by Caliber Media Co. Swetnam is represented by FilmEngine and APA.

Osunsanmi sold his spec “Dark Moon” to Warner Bros. and adapted “Zero G” for Temple Hill at Fox.
