A seemingly promising project is about to come out from Paramount Vantage. The studio has satisfyingly obtained the worldwide rights to Alan McElroy's spec script "Fracture (2007)" with "The Ring" duo Mike Macari and Neal Edelstein seating as producers.
Intended to be a chilling psychological thriller, the picture concerns a man whose wife and children suddenly disappear after entering an emergency room. While it is reported that the flick is out to a director, there is no word yet on either cast or film crew.
Originally named Paramount Classics, Paramount Vantage is the specialty film division of Paramount Pictures that generally produces, distributes, and markets films with a more "art house" feel. Its upcoming productions include "There Will Be Blood", "Into the Wild", and "A Mighty Heart" which is currently filming in India with Michael Winterbottom at helm.
