As reported by Deadline, Blumhouse will continue to use their financing superpowers for good by backing production for Intruders, an upcoming thriller from Tommy Wirkola.
Audiences may know the Norwegian writer/director from his Nazi-zombie smash hit Dead Snow – and its sequel – as well as the high-octane fairy tale flick Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters.
Most recently, Wirkola directed Netflix’s dystopian sci-fi thriller What Happened To Monday? from a script – from the popular screenplay site The Black List – written by Max Botkin and Kerry Williamson.
Intruders would see Wirkola as both writer and director with Adam McKay and Kevin Messick producing for Gary Sanchez. The plot is described as follows:
A mother escapes her abusive husband and takes her young daughter toward refuge in a secluded home, only to be assailed by intruders hungry for the gold that’s supposedly buried in the house.
This news comes hot on the heels from Blumhouse’s other recently announced deals for a new original anthology series, an adaptation of You Should Have Left with Kevin Bacon, and an upcoming extraterrestrial twist on the home invasion subgenre with The Invasion.
