EXCLUSIVE: New Line has bought a Western pitch titled Redemption from Carey and Chad Hayes that John Rickard will produce through his Rickard Pictures banner, which has a first look deal at New Line. Deal comes after the Hayes brothers wrote The Conjuring for New Line. That James Wan-directed thriller stars Vera Farmiga and Patrick Wilson and will be released in January.
Rickard is separately developing Rampage at New Line and is an exec producer on Jack The Giant Killer. He was co-producer on Final Destination 5, Horrible Bosses, Hall Pass and A Nightmare On Elm Street. Michael Disco and Sam Brown will oversee Redemption for New Line. The Hayes brothers are repped by WME and Circle of Confusion.
