Whether its video helmers or stage directors, Sundance has been a reliable launchpad lieu for nouveau British talent — video helmer Fredrik Bond (The Necessary Death of Charlie Countryman) and Rupert Goold (True Story) come to mind. Yet another directorial debut on our predictions list, there is reason to believe that this shot in 2014 crime drama might drop in early 2016. With a background in television (episodes of “Skins” and “Doctor Who”) prior to working on his directorial debut, Adam Smith directed the heavily sensorial and pulsating concert vid Don’t Think. Starring Michael Fassbender and festival fave Brendan Gleeson with a noteworthy trio of supporting players in Sean Harris (a must see in Yann Demange’s ’71), Lyndsey Marshal and Rory Kinnear, Trespass Against Us also employs the service of cinematographer Eduard Grau (Buried/Suffragette) and naturally an original score from The Chemical Brothers.

Cult horror comic Hack/Slash has spent years in development as a movie, but now THR is reporting that it’s being set up as a series at Relativity Television.
Over the years, the project has courted directors such as Marcus Nispel, Fredrik Bond and Todd Lincoln, with Justin Marks and Stephen Susco among the writers that took a crack at the script. Now, the series will be produced by Adrian Askarieh and Ray Ricord, with Skip Woods (Swordfish, A Good Day to Die Hard, the Hitman movies) on writing duties. Apparently the “goal to make it a dark and gritty show in The Walking Dead mold.”
For the uninitiated, THR has also provided a synopsis:
Hack/Slash centers on Cassie Hack, a woman who symbolizes the cliche of the lone girl who survives at the end of every horror movie. But now, the emotionally damaged girl not only survived »
- Mark Cassidy
The story centers on Cassie Hack, a young woman who has become a killer of killers and travels to small towns across the country hunting hunting homicidal maniacs and serial killers in the vein of horror icons like Freddy Krueger and Michael Myers.
She is partnered on her journey with Vlad, a hulking companion who serves as her protector. The property has spent many years in development as a film with the likes of Marcus Nispel, Fredrik Bond and Todd Lincoln attached as directors at some point. Woods and Adrian Askarieh will executive produce the series.
