EXCLUSIVE: Intrepid Pictures has tapped Grzegorz Jonkajtys to helm Fourth Horseman, a contemporary action thriller. The logline: a young medical intern who is haunted by nightmarish clairvoyant visions of the future, is hunted by three of the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse. He discovers his destiny is to prevent the rise of the Fourth Horseman–Death–and to avert the end of the world.
Jonkajtys helmed the short thriller films The 3rd Letter and The Ark. He has also done strong visual effects work on such films as Battleship, Transformers: Dark Of The Moon, Rango, Iron Man 2, Star Trek, Sin City and Pan’s Labyrinth. He’s repped by Verve and Gotham Group.
Intrepid is in pre-production on Oculus, the supernatural thriller that starts production in October with Mike Flanagan directing, and they’ve completed the teen thriller Crush with Crystal Reed and Lucas Till. Summit releases The Cold Light Of Day with Henry Cavill, Bruce Willis and Sigourney Weaver September 7. Intrepid’s most recent release was the John Cusack-starrer The Raven and The Strangers.
Here is Jonkajtys’ short film Ark, which was nominated for the Golden Palm at Cannes:
