Par heals ‘Fracture’

Studio nabs rights to thriller

Paramount Vantage has snapped up worldwide rights to Alan McElroy’s psychological thriller “Fracture,” with “The Ring” duo Mike Macari and Neal Edelstein set to produce.

Project is out to a director.

Story revolves around a man whose wife and children disappear into an emergency room, seemingly never to return.

Vantage production and acquisitions topper Amy Israel said McElroy’s script taps into “our collective anxiety about hospitals.”

McElroy is currently in theaters with “The Marine,” which he and Michelle Gallagher co-wrote. Past scripting credits include “Wrong Turn” and “Resident Evil.”

Next up for Macari and Edelstein is Hollywood Pictures and Spyglass film “The Invincible,” which opens in January. Producing partners are in pre-production on “Amusement” for Picturehouse and New Line.

McElroy is repped by Hohman, Maybank & Lieb.
