EXCLUSIVE: Emmett/Furla Films and Arise Pictures have teamed up for Absence Of War. The companies will produce and finance the $20 million spy thriller, scheduled to start shooting in April 2013. Absence Of War will be directed and written by David Raymond in the Brit’s feature debut. The film takes place in the shadowy world of private intelligence companies. “We’ve been looking for a franchise like Bond or Mission: Impossible for a long time. As soon as we read the script we knew this was it,” said George Furla today. The company is considering an Absence Of War TV series and video game as well as other platforms. Randal Emmett and Furla are producing with Mark Stewart, Chris Pettit and Raymond. Raymond is repped by WME, 3 Arts and law firm Ziffren Brittenham.
