It was way back in 2012 when we first learned that Sony has bought Gregg Bishop and Joe Ballarini's script for LOCKDOWN AT FRANKLIN HIGH, a high school set monster movie coming at us from Benderspink and Plantinum Dunes. Now Sony has tapped PROJECT ALMANAC scribes Andrew Deutschman and Jason Pagan to rewrite the script, according to The Wrap.

Now known simply as LOCKDOWN, the story follows...

...a straight-edge teen girl and her rebellious outcast brother as they try to escape from their high school, which is under lockdown due to the threat of a ravenous monster that has been attacking students.

Benderspink's J.C. Spink, Chris Bender and Jake Weiner are producing with Platinum Dunes partners Michael Bay, Brad Fuller and Andrew Form.

The original script was written on spec by V/H/S: Viral‘s Greg Bishop and Joe Ballarini, and sold in a competitive situation to Sony back in March 2012. The duo were inspired to write the script by real high school lockdowns following tragic incidents.

Deutschman and Pagan also wrote PARANORMAL ACTIVITY: THE GHOST DIMENSION which Paramount will release on October 23.
