“Hobo With a Shotgun” Director Jason Eisener will direct an untitled thriller for Fox with OddBall Entertainment’s Wes Ball and Joe Hartwick, Jr. producing with Jeremy Platt.
The film is inspired by Eisener’s “One Last Dive” short film, which he directed and co-wrote with Rob Cotterill and John Davies. The short centered on a diver investigating an underwater crime scene but remaining details about the feature film have yet to be released. Besides directing Rutger Hauer in 2011’s “Hobo with a Shotgun,” Eisener’s credits include “V/H/S 2” and “The ABCs of Death.”
Lewaa Nasserdeen (“The Real O’Neals,” “The Goldbergs”) is writing the script. Jason Young is overseeing the project for the studio.
The “One Last Dive” feature joins a number of projects on Oddball’s current development slate, which includes the family-adventure “In Search of Humans” and “Ruin” (based on Ball’s short film of the same name). They’re also currently in production on director Ball’s third Maze Runner franchise installment “Death Cure” slated for a January, 2018, release.
