Syfy Films snaps up ‘Day 38’

Follows stormchasers fighting off more than Mother Nature

Syfy Films is looking to “Day 38,” snapping up the found-footage thriller from the writing team of Gabe Scott & Chris Rossi.

Deal closed Friday. Story’s told from the point of view of a group of stormchasers who face a Category 5 tornado and find themselves fighting off a force even greater than Mother Nature.

Year-old SyFy Films, created as a venture between Universal and SyFy Ventures, made its first deal in October when it bought feature rights to George R.R. Martin’s superhero anthology “Wild Cards” and tapped Melinda Snodgrass to pen the screenplay.

SyFy Films senior VP Gregory Noveck made the deal for “Day 38” with APA, which repped the writing team.

Scott wrote and directed “The Sentient,” a nine-minute film with more than 80 vfx shots that was set up in November with Quincy Pictures with the aim of making a full-length feature. Crew included Oscar nominees Randy Kerber as composer, Scott E. Anderson on VFX and Rick Kline as sound mixer.

Scott is managed by Dave Brown of Artist International.

Rossi’s managed by Jennifer Levine at Untitled Entertainment.
