Agc Studios has boarded the project and agreed to fully finance and produce the film. Blomkamp is best known for his Oscar-nominated debut “District 9.” He also oversaw “Elysium” and “Chappie,” both of which were less financially and critically successful.
Kitsch’s credits include “Lone Survivor,” “Savages,” and “Battleship.” He will star as a cop who is called to investigate a seemingly ordinary murder in the New Mexico desert. There he uncovers a deeper conspiracy and begins to suspect that the killer he’s trying to find may be a humanoid beast.
Agc Studios was founded by veteran sales agent Stuart Ford. Its films include Roland Emmerich’s WWII action drama “Midway,” as well as the comedy “Breaking News in Yuba County” with Allison Janney and Mila Kunis, and the Noomi Rapace thriller “The Secrets We Keep.”
