'Day' gets Intrepid partner
EmptyIntrepid Pictures is on board to produce Scott Wiper's Hitchcockian thriller "The Cold Light of Day." Wiper and John Petro's screenplay centers on Will Shaw, a young Wall Street trader whose family is kidnapped on a vacation to Spain. He's left with only hours to find them and uncover a government conspiracy.
Intrepid principals Trevor Macy and Marc D. Evans will finance and produce the film, which Essential Entertainment is repping at next week's American Film Market. Intrepid produced this year's Rogue Pictures hit "The Strangers." "Day" will be made outside Universal and Rogue, which has a first-look pact with Intrepid. (partialdiff)
