Paramount Taps Corin Hardy for Lorenzo di Bonaventura’s ‘Hell Bent’

Paramount has attached “The Hallow” director Corin Hardy to direct action movie “Hell Bent” with Lorenzo di Bonaventura and Mark Vahradian producing.

The script, written by Mike Finch, follows a group of mercenaries who are murdered in a Brazilian jail and led into hell by a priest in order to kill Satan.

Hardy was attached to direct Relativity’s reboot of “The Crow” in late 2014 before the company went through bankruptcy. The company emerged from bankruptcy protection in March but it’s not clear whether it plans to go ahead with “The Crow.”

The Hallow,” in which a conservationist unleashes demonic forces in the rural Irish forest, premiered at the 2015 Sundance Film Festival and was acquired by IFC for the U.S.

Besides “The Hallow,” the Irish director’s credits include the animated short “Butterfly” and music videos for Ed Sheeran, Biffy Clyro, Keane, Paolo Nutini and the Prodigy.

Paramount-based di Bonaventura Pictures has produced the “Transformers,” “G.I. Joe” and “Red” franchises along with “Salt,” “Side Effects,” “Shooter,” “Jack Ryan” and “The Devil Inside.”

Hardy is repped by WME, Hugo Young at Independent Talent Group, Elevate Entertainment’s Jenny Wood and attorney Fred Toczek. The news was first reported by Deadline Hollywood.
