1984 Private Defense Contractors Boards ‘The Voices’ (EXCLUSIVE)

Story centers on talking pets giving advice

1984 Private Defense Contractors have joined Mandalay Vision and Vertigo as producers on supernatural drama “The Voices,” with Ryan Reynolds starring.

1984 toppers Spencer Silna (pictured left) and Adi Shankar (pictured right) are producing alongside Mandalay Vision’s Matthew Rhodes and Vertigo’s Roy Lee. The producers have greenlit “The Voices” and have started seeking additional cast.

Marjane Satrapi (“Persepolis”) is attached to direct from a 2009 Black List script by Michael R. Perry (“Paranormal Activity 2”). Story centers on a disturbed factory worker who can hear advice from his pet cat and dog and commits an accidental killing of a co-worker.

The Deadline.com site reported in October that Reynolds was in talks for the part. Laura Lewis at CAA identified the project for 1984.

Reynolds will be seen next in Universal’s “R.I.P.D.”

1984’s producing credits include “The Grey,” “Dredd” and “Killing Them Softly.”
