Beau Flynn, one of the producers behind Disney’s upcoming Jungle Cruise, is teaming up with New Line for a home invasion thriller.
New Line has picked up Prowl, a pitch from writing duo Jake Emanuel and Willie Block, who will now write the script. Flynn will produce the project via his FlynnPictureCo., which has a long-term first-look deal with both New Line and Warner Bros.
Plot details are being kept in the basement, but the project is being described as a genre-bending, female-driven home invasion thriller set over the course of one evening.
FlynnPictureCo.’s Scott Sheldon will act as executive producer. Shelby Thomas will oversee the project for the company. Richard Brener, Dave Neustadter and Chris Pan are overseeing for New Line.
Emanuel and Block have developed projects for Phil Lord and Chris Miller, Sacha Baron Cohen and Danny McBride. They also wrote an adaptation of The Hunchback of Notre Dame for Paramount and were staff writers on animated series Chozen.
Most recently, Emanuel and Block wrote and directed the narrative podcast The Edge of Sleep, produced by QCODE Media. Sleep garnered a coveted five-star rating and over 4 million downloads, and a season two has now been greenlit. The duo, repped by law firm McKuin Frankel, recently released horror anthology podcast Bad Vibes, also for QCODE.
FlynnPictureCo. is prepping for the July 30 opening of Jungle Cruise, which stars global superstar Dwayne Johnson alongside Emily Blunt. The company is currently in production on Black Adam, New Line’s DC superhero feature that stars Johnson.
