ContentFilm gets a ‘Splinter’

Kroeber, Berry to produce Wilkins horror film

LONDON — ContentFilm Intl. has picked up international rights to “Splinter,” a U.S. horror-thriller from first-time director Toby Wilkins that’s set to shoot this summer.

Ted Kroeber and Kai Berry produce. Story is set in and around a quiet gas station on a lonely freeway, where a terrifying virus-like monster inhabits the bodies of its victims and drives them with a relentless lust for blood.

Wilkins was previously chosen by horror maestro Sam Raimi to direct “Tales of the Grudge,” a series of short films to promote Raimi’s second installment of the “Grudge” franchise. Two of his shorts have screened at Sundance, and he has also done f/x and design work for James Cameron, Brett Ratner and Bryan Singer.

Wilkins’ CGI skills will be put to use with the virus monster in “Splinter,” which twists the bodies of its prey into the shapes best suited to pursue its unrelenting desire to infect more victims and kill again.

Berry and Ian Shorr penned the script. Cast will be announced shortly.

CAA is representing North American rights.
