EXCLUSIVE: Fox has set Brad Parker to direct The Mountain, a psychological thriller that will be produced by Red Hour Films. This comes on the heels of the work Parker did as a 2nd unit director on the Matt Reeves-helmed Dawn Of The Planet Of The Apes. The studio wanted to keep Parker in the fold, and offered this Helen Childress-scripted thriller, with a logline they’re keeping under wraps. Parker is separately attached to an untitled thriller for Paramount that Bad Robot and Reeves are producing.

Parker began his career at Digital Domain where he collaborated with a range of filmmakers including David Fincher, James Gray and Mark Romanek. Parker’s repped by Paradigm, Oasis Media Group, and attorney Darren Trattner at Jackoway, Tyerman.
