Saban Films has acquired the rights to Zack Whedon’s thriller Come and Find Me which stars Annabelle Wallis, Aaron Paul, Garret Dillahunt and Zachary Knighton. The film follows a man who must track down his missing girlfriend when he discovers that she was not who he thought.
Zack Whedon (pictured right) is Joss Whedon’s younger half-brother and Come and Find Me marks his first film as a director. Zack is typically associated with writing rather than directing and has screenwriting credits on episodes of Fringe, Southland and Halt and Catch Fire. Both he and Joss Whedon co-wrote Dr. Horribles Sing-Along Blog back in 2008 and, also, The Shepherd’s Tale story from the Serenity comics.
Saban Films recently secured the distribution rights to Backtrack and Rob Zombie’s 31, so they’re picking up some potentially great features. When speaking about Come and Find Me, Saban Films’ Bill Bromiley said, “It’s surprising that this is Zack’s first feature. His filmmaking pulls together all the elements of a great thriller — intriguing characters, clever dialogue and expert pacing. It makes sense that the script attracted such A-list talent. We love this film and know audiences will, too.” So that’s positive!
