EXCLUSIVE: FilmDistrict has taken an equity stake in WER, a horror film that is directed by The Devil Inside helmer William Brent Bell that is expected to be one of the hot titles at Berlin later this week. Bell wrote the script with Matthew Peterman, with whom he scripted The Devil Inside, a sleeper low budget horror film which has grossed $53 million domestic for Paramount. Shooting begins April 9. FilmDistrict could end up as the film’s domestic distributor, but that hasn’t yet been decided as Peter Schlessel’s distribution company recalibrates and should have new heads of distribution and marketing by Cannes. FilmDistrict, which is working on a sequel to Insidious and a remake of Evil Dead and is up for four Spirit Awards for Drive, will finance the film alongside Sierra/Affinity and its partner, the Incentive Filmed Entertainment fund.
