Emre Sahin has come onboard to direct ensemble drama-thriller “Seven Days Waiting” for Davis Entertainment and Brad Jensen.
Project, set up last year with the logline kept under wraps, follows a war vet suffering from PTSD, a financial executive contemplating suicide and a young woman seeking revenge for a past crime. Their lives intersect during a seven-day waiting period following the purchase of a firearm.
Script is by Jeff Bacon, Joe Davidson and Jordan Capell.
Derek Dauchy will oversee the project for Davis. Benderspink is exec producing.
Sahin is a Turkish-American multihyphenate who directed and wrote 2010’s “40,” a drama thriller set in Istanbul with three strangers crossing paths to obtain a bag of ill-gotten cash.
Davis has a long-standing first-look deal at Fox. Recent productions include “Chronicle,” “Mr. Popper’s Penguins,” “Predators” and “Gulliver’s Travels” for the studio.
Sahin is repped by CAA and the Gotham Group.
