Hyde Park Entertainment Acquires Kenny Golde’s Killer, A Contained POV Thriller With Franchise Potential
Posted on Monday, February 22nd, 2010 by Peter Sciretta
Hyde Park Entertainment and Parkes/MacDonald Productions have acquired Kenny Golde‘s spec screenplay Killer. The contained thriller was originally written with the intent to produce the film on a low budget. I heard that the screenplay was originally making the rounds at Paramount’s new low-budget film division and Fox Searchlight, but quickly made its way up to the bigger studios.
The story is told through the point of view of a single video camera held by a police officer videotaping a murder investigation. While investigating the crime scene, the police discover a video left by the killer, made with hidden cameras planted throughout the house they are investigating.
