Riot goin' on in 'Hell'; two writers ready
EmptyBold Films is heading "Into Hell." Dominic Morgan and Matthew Harvey have been hired to write the action thriller.
"Hell" revolves around a group of English soccer hooligans who travel to Istanbul for a match. The gang soon finds themselves in over their heads, however, when they get framed for a political assassination.
Producer Ian Carrington, who is producing with Bold's Michel Litvak and David Lancaster, helped develop the project with longtime friend and action star Jason Statham in mind. Once the script draft is complete, he plans to submit it to Statham, a star player on the United Hollywood soccer team he manages. Statham is in production on "Transporter 3."
Carrington brought the project to Bold ("Legion") with fellow producers Timothy Peternel and David Hillary of Deviant Films.
Bold's Gary Walters will executive produce the project, which is being overseen by the production/financing company's Jon Oakes.
Morgan and Harvey recently penned "The Coral Sea" for Working Title and "The Twelfth Apostle" for A Thousand Words and producer Palmer West. They are repped by UTA and manager Jewerl Ross.
