"Wanted" director Timur Bekmambetov is set to produce the horror thriller "Squirrels" for Red Sea Media and his own production company Bazelevs.
The story follows a young man whose estranged father is killed under suspicious circumstances. He returns home for the first time in years to get to the bottom of the mystery.
Instead, he finds his mom's sleazy new boyfriend, a natural gas company buying up the town, an angry female sheriff who happens to be his ex-girlfriend, and an army of flesh-eating squirrels hellbent on destroying everything in their path.
A director is currently being sought, with a major cast expected to sign shortly. Daniel Antoniazzi and Ben Shiffrin penned the script based on an idea by Bekmambetov.
