‘Companion’ – Zach Cregger Producing Mysterious Horror Movie for New Line

New Line Cinema is in the Zach Cregger Business in the wake of last year’s box office hit Barbarian, recently acquiring his next movie titled Weapons. Additionally, Deadline reports today that Cregger will be producing a horror movie titled Companion for New Line.

Deadline details, “Cregger’s latest project is Companion, a horror-thriller marking the directorial debut of Drew Hancock, who also penned the script. Plot details are under wraps. But like Weapons, Companion is being fast-tracked for production this year.”

BoulderLight’s Raphael Margules and J.D. Lifshitz will also produce along with Vertigo’s Roy Lee. BoulderLight’s Tracy Rosenblum and Vertigo’s Andrew Childs will exec produce.

On a related note, New Line just linked up with BoulderLight Pictures to have the Barbarian producers develop “high concept” genre movies for the studio, signing a first-look deal with the company. Their hope is that the Barbarian team will be part of a new wave of genre entertainment for New Line, so expect to hear a lot more from BoulderLight this year.
