Dimension nabs ‘Necropolis’

Anderson will write, produce thriller

Dimension Films has acquired the original pitch “Necropolis,” a psychological thriller set in Chicago, from hot genre helmer Paul W.S. Anderson. In addition to scripting, Anderson will produce the pic with longtime partner Jeremy Bolt.

Anderson is readying to direct monster-clash actioner “Alien vs. Predator” for Fox and, with Bolt, is in preparation on “Resident Evil: Apocalypse.” Pic is the sequel to 2002’s zombie frightfest “Resident Evil,” which grossed almost $40 million domestically for Screen Gems and became a steady international earner.

Anderson and Bolt will work closely with Dimension via their Impact Pictures banner to find a director for the new project.

Dimension co-presidents of production Andrew Rona and Brad Weston, and senior VP of production and development Michael Zoumas will oversee “Necropolis” for the studio. Deal was negotiated on behalf of Dimension by Andrew Gumpert, exec VP, business and legal affairs.
