Walker also exec produces the pic, which is skedded to shoot in August, while “Buried” producer Peter Safran and Ryan Haidarian, former head of production and development at the NFVF, will produce.

K5’s Daniel Baur negotiated the deal with Safran and Haidarian. UTA is repping domestic rights.
K5 acquired all international rights through a combination of its own funds, Kevin Frakes’ financing entity PalmStar MediaCapital and EFish Entertainment, an L.A.-based shingle.
