Oh well, so much for being man's best friend...
UK sales outfit The Salt Company has boarded international rights to the rabid dog horror tale THE POOL, to be directed by Paul Hyett (THE SEASONING HOUSE, HOWL), according to Screen Daily.
Written by Johannes Roberts and Ernest Riera (with revisions by Hyett, Conal Palmer and Steven Lally), and set to be produced by Tim Dennison of Tall Man Films, THE POOL follows...
...a pool party at a luxury cliff top location that becomes a desperate fight for survival when the beloved family dog turns rabid.
“What elevates a horror into a classic is making the audience terrified of the everyday – in this case, man’s best friend.”
Hyett is handling FX for the project. The film is due to start shoot in autumn 2014 in Puerto Rico.
