FINAL DESTINATION creator Jeffrey Reddick is overseeing the upcoming supernatural thriller CLOUDLAND, which is set to star THE O.C.'s Mischa Barton, Drew Fuller ("Army Wives"), Katie Parker (ABSENTIA), and DREDD producer Adi Shankar, according to The Wrap.
Reddick created the project and will share story credit with Alex Bram, who will make his feature directorial debut with CLOUDLAND. Bram also co-wrote the script with Martin Aguilera. Reddick will oversee production.
The story follows...
...a young journalist (Fuller) who investigates a religious cult's terrifying prophecy after the paranormal murder of his younger sister (Parker).
Barton will play Fuller's editor and love interest, while Shankar will play an intimidating member of the cult.
While Shankar is best known as an indie producer and film financier, he recently played an unrecognizable role alongside Ryan Reynolds and Anna Kendrick in Marjane Satrapi's THE VOICES, which he also produced through his 1984 Privste Defense Contractors banner.
VFX company PRPVFX (EVIL DEAD) will bring the script's surreal elements to life, while Mark Lanza (INDEPENDENCE DAY) will handle sound design for CLOUDLAND, which starts production this fall in Los Angeles.
