Josh Trank to direct sci-fi thriller

Sparking interest with its originality, “Chronicle” is a docu-style account of three Portland teens who become exposed to a mysterious substance in the woods and, as a result, develop incredible powers. The teenagers hone their skills for fun, until personal and family problems turn them against one another.

Trank is the son of docu filmmaker Richard Trank, while Landis is the son of director John Landis.

Trank is repped by APA and Magnet; Landis is repped by Circle of Confusion.
