Minahan set for USA thriller

Plot details being closely guarded

CANNES — Dan Minahan (“Series 7”) is developing an untitled thriller set in contempo Los Angeles for USA Films.

Project reteams Minahan with USA, which acquired and released the reality-series satire “Series 7,” and that film’s producers, Christine Vachon and Katie Roumel of Killer Films.

Although the plot is closely guarded, Minahan — who will also write the script — is currently in Los Angeles researching how actors behave around their fans.

Steven Raphael, USA’s senior VP of acquisitions and co-productions, brought the project into the company.

Deal was negotiated by USA’s Avy Eschanasy, exec VP of business affairs, with Minahan repped by CAA and managers Widescreen.
