Swedish helmer Mikael Hafstrom (below) whom previously bought us the likes of the Stephen King adaption feature '1408' and this years exorcism related flick 'The Rite', starring Anthony Hopkins, is to take on yet another horror themed project. Hafstrom will direct 'Wake' for Hammer Films whose resurgence into the horror market recently is commendable. 'Wake' from a script by Christopher Borrelli and a rewrite by scribe Matt Sand is the "story of a modern-day Jekyll and Hyde who knows no bounds". Exclusive Media Group will produce and finance the project. Hammers' 'Wake' shouldn't be confused with the Miley Cyrus project of the same name which involves being sucked into people's dreams, based on the series of novels by Lisa McMann. Check out the synopsis below.
"Wake tells the story of a modern-day Jekyll and Hyde who knows no bounds -- one of the 3% of all men who are considered sociopaths, lacking concern for the well being of others or for the consequences of their actions and one of the 1% of all men born without the emotional capability to experience fear."
