Akselrad To Pen “The Gate” Feature

Mitchell Akselrad will pen a feature adaptation of the “Splice”-esque short film “The Gate” for Wayfare Entertainment reports the trades.

The London-set story is framed around a Government hearing and deals with redundant genes suddenly reactivating in people after they took medication they had bought from an unregulated online source. The gene changes lead to drastic mutations, essentially turning them into monsters.

Matt Westrup, who helmed the original, is returning to direct and will produce alongside Spencer Friend, Ben Browning and Sarah Shepard.
