Lionsgate picked up U.S. distribution rights to the Barry Levinson-directed eco-horror film The Bay from Alliance Films. Michael Wallach wrote the script, and among the producers is the Paranormal Activity team. The pic chronicles a biological disaster unleashed from the waters in Chesapeake Bay. It’s an isopod parasite that carries an untreatable disease that jumps from fish to human hosts. ICM and CAA packaged the film.
