Mark Wahlberg Remakes “The Raven”

The wave of acclaimed online shorts scoring feature film deals shows no sign of slowing with Ricardo de Montreuil’s chase thriller “The Raven” the latest to join the club.

Filmed on the RED camera, the original $5000 short was shot in downtown Los Angeles over a weekend and is set in an alternate future Los Angeles which has become something of a police state. A man named Chris Black (Victor Lopez) is being pursued by the current regime as he possess powers that could lead to its demise.

Now, Latino Review reports that Mark Wahlberg is in talks to star and produce the feature film version for Universal Pictures. Justin Marks is penning the script and Montreuil will return as director. Further details to come.
