EXCLUSIVE: Material sales slowed the last two weeks while the town was preoccupied with vacations, but stuff is selling again. Yesterday, Dimension Films made a preemptive deal to acquire Transference, a horror pitch from scribes Brandon and Phillip Murphy. The movie is in the spirit of Night Of The Living Dead and World War Z, where residents of a small Bible belt town grapple with the onset of a global outbreak of demonic possession that spreads like virus. Not sure if this fits into Hollywood’s fixation on faith-based fare, but if there are plodding dead guys eating the flesh of slow moving townsfolk like the films that inspired this project, combined with some demonic possession, I am there.
The duo most recently sold their horror spec The Bringing to Sony. They are repped by WME and Mosaic.
