Gale Anne Hurd’s Valhalla Motion Pictures has picked up Chris Bullett’s spec script “The Nameless” says Heat Vision.
The story is set in a top-secret facility operated by the U.S. Marshal’s Federal Witness Protection Program housing witnesses awaiting new identities.
When the area’s location is compromised, an idealistic marshal and the town’s inhabitants take a stand against a team of assassins determined to execute the key witness in an upcoming trial. The tone is described as a “modern-day Western” in the action-thriller mold.
Valhalla will develop and produce the feature and will likely seek independent financing.
