Studio 8 has acquired the action thriller pitch “Planet Kill” which Steven Soderbergh will produce and potentially direct.
His old collaborators Scott Z. Burns (“Contagion”) and James Greer (“Unsane”) came up with the story pitch which is being kept under wraps. Greer will pen the script while Burns will produce.
Also today comes word that filmmakers Lexi Alexander and Scott Derrickson are teaming for “You Bury Me,” a new drama series from Blumhouse Television set across Iraq, Syria and Turkey.
Alexander serves as writer and will executive produce with Derrickson on the show described as an epic love story set against political turmoil in the Middle East.
