Timur Bekmambetov, who produced the Profiles other Hostile series, is set to transform the scares of Julian Terryit’s a horror short Do not look in a full-length film, Term reports.
“The short film follows a young woman who discovers a terrifying character from a video game trying to cross into the real world.”
Produced last year during the quarantine, Terry uploaded the short to YouTube before it was accepted into SXSW. It premiered this week.
Majd Nassif wants to produce under Bekmambetov’s production brand, Bazelevs. Creative executive Pavel Bozhkov wants to oversee the project.
Do not look is a brief follow-up of They listen to it, which was picked up by Legendary, and Whisper, by Amblin, points out the site.
The lesson here? Independent filmmakers, all you need to do is run a microcut with a brief scare and you may be in the feature film business too.
