The Hallow director Corin Hardy will be directing the upcoming action-horror film Hell Bent, penned by Mike Finch (Exclusively Yours). Paramount Pictures has described the film as “Dirty Dozens Goes To Hell”.
In the film, a group of mercenaries imprisoned in a Brazilian jail are murdered and led into the depths of Hell by a priest who wishes to use their skills to kill Satan before he brings hell to Earth.
Deadline stated that Hell Bent is “a throwback to how studios once built franchises,” which they described as “designed to cost $60 million or under” and “not dependent on big stars, but on an ensemble of ‘next hot guys’. That is the way that franchises used to be launched.” Lorenzo di Bonaventura and Mark Vahradian will be producing.
The casting process will soon begin. At this time they are putting the final touches on the script. We will update you when we know more.
