John Travolta and Ethan Hawke are in negotiations to team up on In a Valley of Violence, a new  movie from producer Jason Blum and his Blumhouse production banner.

Also producing with Blum are West collaborators Jacob Jaffke and Peter Phok.

Hawke is by now an old hand at Blumhouse, having already starred in the hits Sinister and The Purge. He is repped by CAA and The Schiff Co.

Travolta recently wrapped The Forger, a indie crime drama that also counts Christopher Plummer and Tye Sheridan amongst its cast. He is repped by WME, Principato Young Entertainment and Lavely & Singer.

West (UTA) wrote and directed horror films such as House of the Devil and The Innkeepers as well as segments in the anthology movies The ABCs of Death and V/H/S. His latest is The Sacrament, which will be release in May by Magnolia/Magnet.
