Dean Devlin’s Electric Entertainment will co-finance and take all worldwide rights to Anthony Hopkins’ drama “Go With Me.”

The film, co-financed by Enderby Entertainment, is based on the book by Castle Freeman Jr. and will be directed by Daniel Alfredson (“The Girl Who Played with Fire”) from an adaptation by Joe Gangemi and Gregory Jacobs.

Producers are Hopkins, Rick Dugdale for Enderby Entertainment, Lindsay Williams and Ellen Goldsmith-Vein for The Gotham Group and Gregory Jacobs.

Electric will be selling international rights at the upcoming American Film Market. Shooting will begin in British Columbia in mid-November.

Story is set in a Pacific Northwest logging community and centers on a young woman newly returned to her hometown who becomes the subject of harassment by a crimelord who operates with impunity. She enlists the help of an ex-logger, played by Hopkins, and his laconic young sidekick.

Devlin produced “Independence Day” and helped start Voltage Entertainment in 2005. He announced at the Toronto Intl. Film Festival last year that he was returning to the foreign sales/financing business through his Electric Entertainment banner.
