New Regency, See-Saw Set Sci-Fi Thriller 'N'
New Regency and See-Saw Films are partnering on the sci-fi thriller N, based on a short story by Javier Gullón.
The story focuses on a small group of journalists who are invited to a remote part of the world to witness a scientific discovery that will seemingly change the course of history, only to be forced to confront an experiment that could threaten the human race as we know it. One female journalist is left to fend for herself, alter the course of the future and, against all odds, escape alive.
N will be the first project developed and produced under the first look deal See-Saw has with New Regency. The companies worked together on the recent Steve McQueen release Widows.
The film will be produced by See-Saw's Iain Canning and Emile Sherman, along with Peter Dealbert of Pacific View Management and Arnon Milchan for New Regency.
New Regency will finance N, with 20th Century Fox handling worldwide distribution rights. Negin Salmasi, who brought it to See-Saw, will oversee the project.
Gullón, who will be adapting his work into the feature, is repped by CAA, Pacific View Management and Eclipse Law.
