SEAN HOOD TAKES ON TORNADOES
Sean Hood has been brought on board to write The Breathtaker, a horror thriller that John Wells is producing via his shingle, John Wells Prods, according to the Hollywood Reporter. The project is based on Alice Blanchard's novel, which was published in November and was a selection of the Today Show book club. It follows a small-town police chief's pursuit of a serial killer who strikes only during tornadoes, brutally killing his victims in the eye of the storm. Sheldon Turner ('The Longest Yard') wrote the initial draft. Laura Holstein and Tracy Underwood are shepherding the project. Hood comes in with strong chill credentials. He recently wrote 'The Watcher' at Summit Entertainment as well as 'The Dorm' for Paramount and MTV Films. He also worked on 'Halloween: Resurrection,' 'The Crow: Wicked Prayer' and 'Cursed.'
