Sony Picks Up Spooky “Supermax”

Christopher Allen Nelson and Mitch Rouse have sold their horror spec script “Supermax” to Sony Pictures says Bloody Disgusting.

The story takes place in a maximum-security prison populated by supernatural criminals. A prison guard is forced to join forces with a lethal inmate after a riot ensues in the jail.

The two men must fight their way through an army of monsters and mad men to make it out alive. Shooting kicks off early next year.

The project is not to be confused with the similarly titled Justin Marks-penned script “Supermax” which deals with a similar situation in a prison for comic book supervillains.
