Uses “found footage” technique with a really big storm
Think of it as the "Blair Witch Project" with a really big storm instead of a murderous spell-caster.
New Line spent in the low six figures to acquire rights to a spec script about a killer hurricane, TheWrap has confirmed.
The story will be in the found footage vein that proved so fruitful for the makers of "Paranormal Activity" and "Blair Witch."
The film will focus on a group of students who capture the storm's damage with their camera phones and other mobile devices.
Todd Garner's Broken Road will produce.
Deadline first reported the sale.
