Emre Sahin to direct ‘Seven Days Waiting’

Thriller follows people who've purchased guns

Emre Sahin has come onboard to direct ensemble drama-thriller “Seven Days Waiting” for Davis Entertainment and Brad Jensen.

Project, set up last year with the logline kept under wraps, follows a war vet suffering from PTSD, a financial executive contemplating suicide and a young woman seeking revenge for a past crime. Their lives intersect during a seven-day waiting period following the purchase of a firearm.

Script is by Jeff Bacon, Joe Davidson and Jordan Capell.

Derek Dauchy will oversee the project for Davis. Benderspink is exec producing.

Sahin is a Turkish-American multihyphenate who directed and wrote 2010’s “40,” a drama thriller set in Istanbul with three strangers crossing paths to obtain a bag of ill-gotten cash.

Davis has a long-standing first-look deal at Fox. Recent productions include “Chronicle,” “Mr. Popper’s Penguins,” “Predators” and “Gulliver’s Travels” for the studio.

Sahin is repped by CAA and the Gotham Group.
