Federico D’Alessandro is in early talks to write and direct Lockdown At Franklin High for Sony Pictures. I’ve learned it will be a microbudget film based on the script Sony acquired last year by Dance Of The Dead scribes Gregg Bishop and Joe Ballarini. Pic tells the story of a group of disparate high school kids who must band together and save themselves from a supernatural creature during a school lockdown. It’s a Benderspink and Platinum Dunes production. Jonathan Kadin is overseeing with Hannah Minghella. D’Alessandro is repped by WME, Storyboards and Oasis Media Group.
